2. Read about the discussion of diversity at the RITAs and RWA. It’s still unfolding. Here’s where you can get started but feel free to add more sources.

Much of the conversation is happening on Twitter. Follow authors and advocates who are leading the discussion: @Tuphlos, @courtneymilan, @AlisahRai, @authorMsBev. Additional handles to consider: @helenkaydimond (current head of RWA), @romancewriters, @SuleikhaSnyder, @AlyssaColeLit, @TheRippedBodice, @WoCInRomance, @MostlyBree, @Sonali_Dev, @DrenzPen.
