If publishers are to fulfil their mission to advance research worldwide and to improve human lives, they must be representative of the societies that they serve. This webinar will explore the importance of the continuing discussion around diversity, equity and inclusion and look to discover how we, as an industry, can better respond to and support the evolving needs of all our stakeholders.

Speakers will seek to frame the current state of diversity, equity and inclusion within academic publishing - so that, even if we do not know what the road looks like up ahead, we at least know where we are now. We will also examine current initiatives that have been implemented within publishing and the broader research community that are combating the dangers of unconscious bias, discrimination, and tokenism. Following these conversations, we will then open the session to discussion and questions from the audience.

COVID-19 presented the workplace, organisations and institutions across the scholarly research community with a variety of unique and unprecedented challenges. For some smaller organisations, working remotely has perhaps been nothing new – but for others, employers and employees were left with little choice but to embrace full-time home working and the world of online collaboration – in some cases virtually overnight.

Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, all members of our community—both at the forefront of scholarly research (authors and researchers) and behind the scenes (publishers and integrators)—have gained a clearer understanding of the extent to which flexible working can function for them. But at the same time, it has become evident that the challenges and opportunities presented by remote working are not equitable; fundamental differences exist across organisation types, geographies and workforce makeup (gender, age, ethnic origin etc) that impact both the ability for a company to embrace change, as well as its performance.

This timely webinar will explore how the industry has reacted and adapted to the challenges presented by COVID-19. Speakers will offer their own accounts of how the pandemic has impacted their ability to produce the work expected from them—whether that work is in the lab itself or focused on publishing research at the same rate and quality—will examine where initiatives have been successfully implemented within publishing and the broader research community, how workplace leadership and culture may yet need to adapt further, and what this all means for the future of scholarly communication.
