Building Inclusivity in Publishing
Tue 15 November 2016, 09:00 – 17:00 GMT
NEW this year! This day-long conference is being run by The Publishers Association and LBF in November. Attendees will be encouraged to consider how they interact with every point of the publishing ecosystem to ensure equal representation in our industry, from authors right through to the consumer. The day will challenge ideas about who our audience is, and how we speak to them, asking attendees what they can be doing better by providing positive examples and personal experiences.
Conference themes will cover all aspects of increasing inclusivity in publishing, including discovering new writing talent, diversity in published content, reaching new audiences, diversity in the publishing workforce, accessibility, bookselling and mentoring.
“Building Inclusivity in Publishing” is open to all working in the book industry, particularly those with managerial or hiring responsibility, a passion for equality, who are in marketing, and those with the urge to make change a reality; such asbooksellers, agents, authors, literary festivaland event organisers, and publishers –those who commission, who hire, and who have a passion for improving diversity.
