How can we make editorial boards more diverse?

'The bottom line – most editorial boards, including our own, aren’t diverse enough. There aren’t necessarily any quick fixes that will make editorial boards more diverse, but we must move forward regardless and mostly through less talk and more action.'

Sally Wilson, VP Publishing at Emerald, shares the steps we are taking to break biases on editorial boards.
