Here is a compiled list of resources pertaining to diversity and inclusion for editors. Check back often as the list will continue to be updated. If you think something is missing and should be added to the list below, please let us know.
A core belief among editors is the right of people to be heard, and ACES: The Society for Editing supports the free exercise of that right for everyone. We stand against acts of racism, we stand with our members working to shine a light on inequality, and we stand against attempts to hinder the freedoms of speech, the press, and assembly.
We believe that communication belongs to everyone, but that it often fails to adequately represent the diversity of our society. With that in mind, ACES seeks to support editing that reflects the diversity of our members and the audiences they serve, focusing on awareness and inclusion of underrepresented communities.
We are dedicated to supporting all our members. You can reach the ACES Diversity & Inclusion Committee at ACESDiversity@aceseditors.org.
The events of this past year have brought attention to the need for a wider variety of voices and reinvigorated the idea of diversity as an aspiration. ACES: The Society of Editors and its members are contributing to this discourse.
Alaina Lavoie, an ACES 2021 Online keynote speaker, discussed diversity in editing and how attendees can contribute to solutions for underrepresented and marginalized communities through radical editing.
While ACES is sharing these resources with our members, the content reflects the point of view of each organization listed.
