Welcome to Westchester words, education, ed tech, and publishing. I'm Nicole Tomassi, the marketing and conference manager for Westchester Publishing Services and Westchester Education Services. When the Westchester Words podcast was launched in the spring of 21, I wasn't sure how it was going to be received, but apparently, I had no reason to be worried because the podcast immediately found a receptive audience and guests who were both interesting as well as interested in coming on to discuss their areas of expertise within publishing, education, ed tech or a combination of these three areas. For those of you who have been along for the entire ride so far, I want to thank you for the support that you've shown us from the outset. And to those of you who are just finding your way to Westchester Words, I want to wish you a warm welcome and say that we're very happy to have your ears. I've been planning season two of Westchester words for a while, and I'm really excited to begin sharing episodes with all of you in just a few weeks from now. During season two of Westchester words, we'll be having discussions about topics that are impacting the publishing industry, such as diversity, equity, and inclusion, ensuring accessibility of digital content, and how to leverage digital platforms in order to increase visibility for your titles. We'll also be discussing diversity, equity and inclusion from a few additional perspectives within education publishing and ed tech, as well as social and emotional learning education publishing outside of the U S career and technical education, and much more as the publishing education and ed tech industries continue to adapt and respond to what's happening in the world.
