Diversity and Pay Equity in Publishing: The Importance of Industry Surveys and Activism

Developing the conversation on issues of diversity and pay equity is crucial today, especially in the publishing industry, which employs a large number of women and publishes books and articles for broad and diverse audiences. Four influential voices within the literary world will discuss the necessity of analyzing and documenting the make-up of the workforce, the importance of balanced and equal representation in book reviews, and the need for books to be written by diverse authors with a plurality of narratives to promote literacy and social justice.
