We're Judging the Diversity & Inclusion Award at the PPA Awards 2021

Wednesday 3rd March 2021

EA Inclusion's Commercial and Marketing Manager, Ben Runcorn, has been invited to be part of the judging panel for the Diversity & Inclusion Award at the PPA (Professional Publishers Association) Awards 2021.


EA Inclusion is currently working with the PPA to deliver its first-ever industry-wide diversity & inclusion survey, offering insight into the industry as a whole, with a view to identify representation, track progress made, and help tackle challenges.


The PPA Diversity & Inclusion Award seeks to recognise a brand or publication that is championing diversity & inclusion within their business, or to their audience. This may be via a new product, campaign, brand extension, podcast, magazine, event, or anything which enhances or promotes D&I across the business and beyond.


Entries should demonstrate:

  • a focus on making publishing more accessible

  • the impact within the company and/or the wider publishing industry

  • the long-term plan to make this sustainable


The extended entry deadline is Monday 8th March. Find out more and enter here: https://ppaawards.co.uk/2021/en/page/home
