One of the questions selected for the most recent moderator election Q&A is
This site has been dominated by the IT industry. What can we do to encourage more diversity? How can we be welcoming to blue collar and other workers who are not considered "professionals" or office workers?
One problem is that the majority of the users here don't have as much first hand experience outside of these standard 'professional' office roles as they do in them, and are not able to provide as comprehensive and nuanced of answers as they can on more familiar questions. If we are able to provide content that is interesting to a broader audience, the user base will grow, diversify, and contribute more of that diverse content we're looking for.
Several of the top answerers on the home improvement sister site are professional tradesmen with exactly the kind of workplace experience we want to encourage here, and with a proven history of helpful StackExchange contributions to boot.
Should we reach out to some of these users and ask them to help seed this site with content that will be useful to a more diverse group of users?
