Cultural Competency in the Educational Channel for Wholesalers & Publishers:
Key Concepts

April 26, 2018
11:00 AM EST 

Presented by:

Shelley Diaz, Reviews Manager, School Library Journal
Kiera Parrott, Reviews Director, School Library Journal and Library Journal


As publishing heeds the call for more and better diversity within children’s and YA literature, the path is not always clear. What do editors and marketing staff need to know about stereotypes, tropes, and loaded language? What do publishing professionals need to understand about implicit bias? How do “own voices” books and sensitivity readers fit into the publishing ecosystem? This program will also be especially relevant to the wholesaler teams involved in collection development, collection management, merchandising and displays, and library marketing and outreach.

School Library Journal review editors Shelley Diaz and Kiera Parrott will offer definitions, guidance, and a starting place for deeper reflection based upon their work training librarians and publishers on cultural competency.
