Equality in Publishing (EQUIP)
Equality In Publishing has been established to promote equality across UK publishing, bookselling and agenting, by driving forward change and increasing access to opportunities within the industry. EQUIP is hosted and funded by the PA and the IPG and operates on two levels; through the Publishing Equalities Charter and EQUIP network. Contact Seonaid MacLeod
