Professional Diversity Network, Inc. to Partner at Women’s Forum 2017 Global
Meeting

The Company’s President, Star Jones, a 9-time Emmy-nominated television
personality, legal correspondent and global thought leader on women’s issues,
to be a featured speaker in Paris, France October 5-6, 2017

CHICAGO, Aug. 18,  2017 (GLOBE  NEWSWIRE) --  Professional Diversity  Network, 
Inc. (NASDAQ:IPDN) (“PDN” or the “Company”),  a global developer and  operator 
of online and in-person networks that provides access to networking, training,
educational and  employment  opportunities for  diverse  professionals,  today 
announced that  it is  a partner  with the  Women’s Forum  for the  Economy  & 
Society (“Women’s  Forum”) and  that  its President,  Star  Jones, will  be  a 
featured speaker at the Women’s Forum 2017 Global Meeting (“WFGM event”).

                               Event Highlights

  o The Women’s Forum is the world’s leading platform featuring women’s voices
    on major social and economic issues
  o Flagship WFGM event to be held October 5-6, 2017 in Paris, with an
    anticipated 70 countries represented by over 1,500 delegates

The Company’s President, Star Jones, will be a featured speaker, presenting
workshops and participating in plenary sessions on “Creating impact through
women’s networks” and “How businesses can be more ‘human’.”

The WFGM event is the premiere event of its kind, designed to build bridges
between generations – between young entrepreneurs, for example, and role
models – having as its theme Engage for Impact! Daring to Lead in a Disrupted
World.

The Company has agreed to partner with the Women’s Forum and is a sponsor at
the WFGM event.  Management believes that this relationship, on this global
stage, is highly beneficial to its membership in the NAPW (U.S.) and IAW
(China) women’s paid professional networking segments because it enhances the
Company’s brand recognition while contributing to the global discussion of
critical issues from women’s perspective, which combine to add to the lifetime
value of the Company’s paid networking memberships. 

Ms. Jones noted that “PDN’s participation at the Women’s Forum Global Meeting
is another example of our place in the global conversation on women’s issues
and commitment to our members. We have previously disclosed our long-term plan
to enhance the lifetime value of our networking memberships, including those
we are now beginning to sell through our IAW segment in China.  I believe that
this event dovetails perfectly with that plan because it brings global
attention to women’s issues, which grows awareness of networking, while
specifically spotlighting our brand within that broader conversation.  At the
same time, it reinforces what we do for women every day, including supporting
our nearly 150 local chapters in the U.S., our eChapters, eCoaching, and the
like.  I am very proud, once again, to showcase our company on this
prestigious, global stage.”
