Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access (DEIA) Training

Romance Writers of America is committed to fostering inclusion and equity for all of our members. In an effort to champion diversity within our organization and the publishing industry, we worked with Dr. Devona F. Pierre, Director of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, & Title IX Coordinator at St. Petersburg College, to develop training on diversity, equity, inclusion and access for our members and chapter leaders.

These training modules have been developed to foster knowledge of these subjects and to better help guide membership in behaviors that foster inclusive environments. Having all members educated and aware will help to build a stronger more inclusive RWA.
