Midsouth SCBWI Equity and Inclusion Team

The Midsouth SCBWI Equity & Inclusion initiative is dedicated to promoting, encouraging, and uplifting under-represented voices in the children’s book industry, including but not limited to, those who identify as Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC), LGBTQIA+, religious minorities and those with disabilities. The E&I team we are building is enthusiastic about cultivating a caring and supportive environment that enables all SCBWI members to thrive in their art.

All E&I Team members are volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a member of this vibrant team, please email: ritahubbard@gmail.com and write EQUITY & INCLUSION in the subject line.
