Panelist: AWP panel, In Pursuit of Inclusivity: Actively Creating Opportunities

  • B113, Oregon Convention Center, Level 1 (map)


Recently, the lack of diversity in publishing has become a prioritized issue. However, creating awareness is not enough of a solution; publishers must actively seek and embrace voices that might otherwise not be heard. In our panel, outreach directors and program coordinators will discuss ways to create a more inclusive industry, calling for publishing professionals, on every level of the industry, to actively seek out and request work from more diverse authors, on more diverse topics.
