As presses, we play a crucial role in supporting and disseminating scholarship within and beyond the academy, and incorporating diversity has never been more important for our organizations, our readers, our society, and our democracy. How do we move beyond knowing that diversity matters to operationalizing our knowledge into action? Our speakers, both experts in the field, will discuss what it means to institutionalize a culture of inclusion, how to start the conversation, and how to put it into practice.
