Shortly after becoming Miss America, Davuluri became the target of xenophobic and racist commentary in social media. Her win also instigated dialogue in India and the Indian diaspora over the topic of colorism. Davuluri drew upon these experiences to promote her platform "Celebrating Diversity Through Cultural Competency" during her year as Miss America. Since ending her reign as Miss America in September 2014, Davuluri has continued to travel throughout the United States and India as a speaker and advocate for diversity, gender equality, and the promotion of STEM education.
