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

ACES: The Society for Editing and the Dow Jones News Fund have created the Richard S. Holden Diversity Fellowship, a pilot program dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion by advancing early- and mid-career professionals in their work as editors and aspiring industry leaders. Our goal is to enable participants to obtain the training and support they need for a faster track to success. 

The application period has closed for the Richard S. Holden Diversity Fellowship. Please check back to see when it reopens.
