In 2017, Graber received the "2017 Media Literacy Teacher Award" from the National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE). She is a regular contributor on digital media topics for Psychology Today and others, and is regularly interviewed by the media regarding tech topics. She's been an Adjunct Professor of Media Psychology teaching "Media Psychology for the 21st Century" and she presents regularly (virtually since COVID) to schools and community organizations across the US and she also conducts teacher workshops. Diana earned a B.A. in Communication Studies from UCLA and a M.A. in Media Psychology & Social Change from UCLA/Fielding Graduate University.
