1. Published in August by the Coalition for Diversity and Inclusion in Scholarly Communications (C4DISC) and Toolkits for Equity in Scholarly Publishing project volunteers, the Antiracism Toolkit for Organizations was created to help us better understand institutionalized racism, to better support Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) staff, to model antiracist leadership, build structures around Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) work, and create policies and procedures that address inequities, disparities, and racist systems. This toolkit is the second in a series of three resources. The first was launched in August 2020 and focused on antiracism resources for allies; a third resource for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color is forthcoming.

    The proposals in the toolkit range from small first steps to structural overhauls in leadership and culture. Not everything in the toolkit is directly applicable to every organization, and some suggestions assume large, corporate entities. To help smaller and midsize university presses make some headway towards becoming antiracist organizations, this presentation provides an overview of the toolkit, highlights some concrete recommendations for presses with limited budget and resources, and presents a case study of how the ideas have been implemented at the American Psychological Association.

    Speakers: David Congdon, University Press of Kansas; Stephanie Pollock, American Psychological Association; and Damita Snow, American Society of Civil Engineers
