Oneworld prides itself on showcasing a very diverse, inclusive workplace. In 2016 we went a step further and launched our Diversity Access Programme to help ensure that our intake of interns reflects the rich diversity of the society in which we live and work, and for whom we publish.
The publishing industry has been criticized in the past for being too white and too middle class, and this new initiative is designed to help address this issue and ensure that those working in the industry are more representative of wider society. This is essential if publishers are to produce books that showcase the full diversity of voices to be found here in Britain, and tell the stories that are not being told. This is especially true for our children’s list, to help our young readers access stories in which they can see themselves and that reflect the issues they experiences in their own lives.
We are happy to work closely with organizations sharing this important objective, and to date we have liaised with both Creative Access and Spread the Word, but we are equally happy to receive applications from aspiring interns from a broad variety of backgrounds.
