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.
