Earlier this year, while making a presentation about Stanford Business magazine at a higher education conference for magazine editors, I asked what I thought was a simple question. Who is your audience? Many in the room looked up at me with blank stares. Perhaps I should have expected their response. The truth is that, as editors, we know where we send our magazines, but we often find it difficult to know who is actually reading our pages and, most important, what they think of our work. That is why we are starting a new Engage section for you to do just that. We welcome you to send us commentary about any topic raised in the stories throughout the publication. Tell us who you are and what you think, and enjoy our latest edition, Equity. I look forward to hearing from you.
