The Multimessenger Diversity Network (MDN), formed in 2018, extends the basic principle of multimessenger astronomy - that working collaboratively with different approaches enhances understanding and enables previously impossible discoveries - to equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in science research collaborations. With support from the National Science Foundation INCLUDES program, the MDN focuses on increasing EDI by sharing knowledge, experiences, training, and resources among representatives from multimessenger science collaborations. Representatives to the MDN become engagement leads in their collaboration, extending the reach of the community of practice. An overview of the MDN structure, lessons learned, and how to join are presented.
