Diversity in Publishing Summer Internship

Our commitment to diversity for our publishing program is matched by a commitment to support a diverse and inclusive workforce behind the scenes. We encourage people of all backgrounds to apply, especially those from historically misrepresented communities. To quote our friends at We Need Diverse Books, “We recognize all diverse experiences, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA, Native, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities.”
