The Magazine Association of BC is committed to encouraging inclusivity, diversity, accountability and accessibility.
You can find more information here, as well as a link to request the full survey report.
We offered two workshops in 2019 in concert with the Association of Book Publishers of BC (ABPBC) in Vancouver and Victoria on May 23 and 24. The code of conduct from the workshops is here.
We are committed to having more diversity in our programming and speakers at our professional development and our MagsWest conference (on hiatus until 2023). See below and on our YouTube channel for some of these sessions.
We have resource sections on such subjects as accountability, diversity, disability, mental health, appropriation, and harassment, and are always adding links and the occasional new section.
