Educating and supporting publishers, editors, authors, and illustrators, who understand the importance of diverse representation in children’s books – and are ready to do something about it.
Together we can transform the bookshelves of the next generation.
Real change starts here
As an Inclusion & Equality Consultant, it is my job to ensure that my clients not only understand the importance of inclusion but that they are fully equipped with the practical tools and ongoing support that is necessary to promote, deliver and maintain truly inclusive representation throughout the publishing industry and beyond.
My goal is that everyone involved in the creation of children’s books is an active participant in inclusive representation, to the point where inclusion becomes totally natural and incidental – just as it should be.
We include Beth in our editorial process for every book that we publish. She makes additional suggestions and carries out extensive research to make sure all references are up to date.
Neil Burden, Publisher and CEO, Child's Play (International) Ltd.
I've been making great books inclusive since 2005. First and foremost, children's books must tell great stories. But any story or product can be inclusive and my mission is to help publishers transform the children's book landscape with authentically inclusive books, encompassing all facets of diversity.
My experience can save you starting from scratch; I’ve been there, made the mistakes and learned from them, so you don’t have to.
