Make inclusion and diversity everybody’s business at Usborne. Engage the whole staff, all departments, at all levels. All staff members to actively participate in training and learning.
For each Usborne book ask ‘Who is represented in this book, and how? Could we include anyone else? Are the characters reflective of the world we live in? Is the representation authentic?’
Discuss inclusion and diversity with colleagues, ensuring it is front and centre in editorial meetings, and challenge those who downplay its importance.
Ensure that Usborne is represented at relevant events and discussions around the area of inclusion and diversity, and that notes are shared with the whole company.
