It's no secret that the publishing industry has a vertical segregation problem – lots of women at the bottom, very few at the top; more BIPOC and nonbinary folks at the bottom, even fewer at the top. Though addressing systemic and institutional inequalities requires much more than actions taken by those from marginalized communities, we still have great power as individuals. This workshop is for anyone who identifies as a woman, BIPOC, a nonbinary person, or LGBTQQIP2SAA and wants actionable, high-impact tools and strategies to empower themselves in their day-to-day — and in their overall career trajectory.
