ECPA has released the second installment of a two-part series that urges the priority of diversity in the industry.  ECPA commissioned Dr. Theon E. Hill, assistant professor at Wheaton College, who presented to editors at PubU 2018 and to authors in 2017 at The Art of Writing conference.  Dr. Hill also presented at the 2019 ECPA Leadership Summit on “Connecting the Christian Community through your Publishing program” and also serves on the "Brain Trust" for the PubU 2019 program.

“His well-received session at PubU to industry editors on ‘Achieving Diversity in Book Publishing’ was the impetus for this project,” states ECPA President & CEO Stan Jantz.  “ECPA publishers are launching and continuing efforts in their own programs and want more opportunities and information to expand their diversity efforts.” Dr. Hill lays out the industry-specific ‘why’ of diversity in the first paper, and drills down into the industry-specific ‘hows’ in his second paper.

Both papers are available to ECPA members for download:

Part One: The Times Are Changing: The Priority of Diversity in Christian Publishing
Part Two: We Must Change Too: Strategic Approaches to Diversity in Christian Publishing
