Scholarly Communication is a global and complex industry with the potential to involve individuals from different background, with differing abilities, with a multitude of circumstances. How can we move from thinking about diversity and inclusivity to developing a truly diverse culture?

It will detail misconceptions about working with people of different abilities and different life circumstances such as pregnancy and parenting.
