This month’s Klopotek Publishing Radio features Lattelle Solomon Reaves, a global DEI leader with over 25 years of experience in the publishing industry. Currently, she is the Director of Diversity at Pearson, responsible for driving the implementation of programs, policies, and systems to foster diversity for internal and external stakeholders. Before joining Pearson, Lattelle served as the Program Manager for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Wiley.
The conversation starts with Lattelle sharing some details of her career path and how photography becomes her personal passion and then moves on to illustrate her corporate communication role. She explains why EDI matters, tells us where publishing is headed from where we are, and sheds some light upon her unique approach to diversity and inclusion. More than that, she also speaks about workplace equity, the importance of a sense of belonging, how she changes the narrative, finally, how we can all work together for achieving a better-represented publishing community.
