Professional Diversity Network, Inc. Launches NAPW Dream Job Campaign

Goal of Placing 500 NAPW Members in New Jobs in the Month of November

CHICAGO, Oct. 16, 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 provide access to networking, training,
educational and employment opportunities for diverse individuals, today
announced that it is launching its NAPW (“National Association of Professional
Women”) Dream Jobs Campaign. The Company’s goal is to place 500 NAPW members
in new jobs in the month of November.

According to Catalyst, a nonprofit organization with a mission to accelerate
progress for women through workplace inclusion, only 34% of senior level
positions in the United States are held by women. This initiative solidifies
PDN’s support to the companies who want to hire women and our members.

By participating in “Get Her Hired” members will:

  o Receive early access to job postings via tailored alerts from our network
    employers who have a focus on women's hiring initiatives for executive
    level positions.

  o Get their resume noticed. Gone are the days of applications going into
    databases without ever reaching a hiring manager’s desk. PDN’s career
    counselor will call our corporate partner to notify them of a NAPW
    applicant and advocates on their behalf.

  o Stay connected. Instead of having to spend hours doing research on the
    latest hiring best practices, members will have access to tips, tools and
    online training – saving them time and money. 

PDN President Star Jones stated, “As the number of women in the workforce
continues to grow, “Get Her Hired” strengthens our investment to providing
women the resources, professional development, and network they need to
advance their career, allowing them to “Aspire—Connect—Achieve.”

PDN continues to focus on bringing global attention to women’s issues, which
grows awareness of networking, while specifically spotlighting its brand
within that broader conversation.

The Company previously announced that on December 2, 2017, it will hold its
First Nasdaq Global Capital Summit Forum, an exclusive forum focused on
entrepreneurialism in Beijing, China at the Qiuhua Resort.

The event will be headlined by Bruce Aust, Vice Chairman of Nasdaq and hosted
by PDN President Star Jones. The event is expected to be the Company’s highest
attended event, potentially drawing as many as 5,000 paid participants,
setting the stage for the Company’s 2018 growth plans.
