In this episode, Mandy speaks to the brilliant, Delayna Spencer, who is Senior Commissioning Editor at SAGE Publishing. In an important conversation that looks at institutional racism within the publishing industry, they discuss the high turnover of BAME staff, diverse representation on hiring panels, and Delayna’s experience being the only senior person of colour working in her department. They also talk about Delayna’s work commissioning the ‘Little Guides for Teachers’ series and the impact of her setting up BAME groups and the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion council at SAGE.
