Historically African American-focused project will for the first time ever celebrate the contributions and achievements of many communities of color
Who’s Who Publishing, a subsidiary of Real Times Media has announced that, for the first time, its automotive-geared project, DRIVEN, will be expanded beyond its historically African American-focused content.

As in years past, the DRIVEN project will be unveiled in conjunction with the North American International Auto Show. DRIVEN has become one of the most significant multi-cultural events of the year in the Automotive industry and is a must attend among industry watchers and media. At the center of the project is a coffee-table publication that the automotive industry’s brightest and best achievers from diverse ethnic backgrounds. It chronicles the unique stories of multicultural automotive professionals and highlights the leaders making a major impact on the industry. DRIVEN IV will also have a robust digital presence that will live throughout the year.
To ensure a larger representation of multi-cultural professionals, Who’s Who is currently looking for corporate executives, suppliers, business owners and university educators in the automotive industry to be featured in the publication. Selected individuals receive complimentary admittance to the DRIVEN in Living Color unveiling reception which will occur in January.
