Toolkits for Equity has released their latest toolkit, Antiracism Toolkit for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. Hosted on PubPub in collaboration with Coalition for Diversity & Inclusion in Scholarly Communications (C4DISC), the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP), and the Knowledge Futures Group, this toolkit is aimed towards BIPOC as a resource to navigate the scholarly publishing ecosystem.
The Toolkits for Equity project emerges as one such mechanism to work toward a more equitable, affirming, and just industry. In the larger scope of an increasingly unequal world where racialized people suffer in many different ways, this particular toolkit, the Antiracism Toolkit for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), is a small yet specific contribution, and one that we hope will be meaningful and useful to BIPOC-identifying individuals navigating an industry that can be wonderful, but also hostile.
While this resource isn’t explicitly related to digital humanities, the toolkit contains resources for conversations on scholarly publishing that are relevant within the wider digital humanities and library world.
