Inclusive Minds to Host Diversity Event: ‘A Place at the Table’
The concept for ‘A Place at the Table’ was inspired by CBC Diversity’s successful speed-dating style event held in May 2014, which brought together educators, librarians, authors, illustrators, publishers, agents, and others in the industry to connect over their shared mission: “to promote and develop books that more adequately reflect the demographics and realities of the world in which we live.”
Attendees of January’s event will collaborate on “action points” for Inclusive Minds’ charter, ‘Everybody In,’ bringing the collective’s mission to the forefront.
The workshop will allow those in the book industry to actively consider the barriers to inclusion and gain a heightened awareness of what is needed, and the skills required to translate this into action…
If you’re committed to working with us to change the face of children’s books, tweet ‘I’m in’, using the hashtag #everybodyin (Via Inclusive Minds)
