The organization of Miss Diva believes passionately in the power of beauty to change attitudes, project confidence, and empower young women by instilling a sense of uniqueness and encouraging self-expression, creating significant and aspirational value among the youth. The revised format tactically merges online and offline experiences, powered by strategic partnerships, thereby promoting the pageant’s cherished ideals of women's empowerment, talent promotion, social influence, and community building.

The Miss Diva organization stated, "The improvised eligibility criteria redefine the scope and the relevance of beauty by adopting an inclusive and holistic approach, thereby appealing to a wider audience and social constructs. We encourage and call on transgender women to participate in the pageant and celebrate the essence of individuality. "

Adline Castelino recently represented India at Miss Universe 2020 in the United States and, after her spectacular performance throughout the competition, she was adjudged as the third runner-up at the end of the event's finale. With Adline's placement as third runner-up, the Indian beauty broke the record for India's placement in the top spot after 20 years.
