Long characterized by a majority female workforce, male-dominated leadership, and a striking lack of diversity*, the scholarly publishing industry is changing and WE can accelerate the pace of that change. Add your voice to the Workplace Equity Project (WE), a grassroots effort to fast-track the advancement of equity, diversity, and inclusion within scholarly publishing workplaces around the world.

From 31 January to 23 March 2018, WE’s first initiative — the Workplace Equity survey — is soliciting participants to share perceptions and experiences. By identifying both strengths and opportunities at the industry level, WE can advocate for broader access to resources and opportunities and track the progress of change. The WE Survey is now closed.

Founded in 2017, WE is an independent, nonprofit organization that employs research, communications, and advocacy to raise awareness and promote solutions for organizations across the scholarly publishing community. *Colestock, Meadows and Kane, Wheeler, and others.
