A new conference is being launched in November, programmed by The Publishers Association with event management by The London Book Fair (LBF), to address the issues around inclusivity and diversity in publishing.
The Publishers Association has worked with diversity organisations and other engaged parties across the publishing industry on the preliminary planning of the conference to ensure a balanced and relevant programme.
Conference themes will be increasing inclusivity in publishing from discovering new writing talent, diversity in published content, reaching new audiences, diversity in the publishing workforce, accessibility, bookselling and mentoring. The conference will look at progress so far, existing initiatives and organisations as well as discussion of ways to promote diversity across the industry.
Speakers and participants will include authors, publishers, agents and booksellers.
