Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

in Sage Business Foundations

Sage’s scholarly and career resources building resources represent the work of academic and nonacademic experts from around the world. Our editors and contributors come from multiple countries, have highly varied professional backgrounds, represent diverse academic institutions, and approach topics from a range of disciplinary perspectives. They bring years of experience working with students and preparing them for the challenges an opportunities of the modern business world.

In creating these resources, it was and is important for us to recognize the highly diverse life experiences and academic backgrounds of students and ensure that our content is inclusive and accessible. We remain committed to this as we update and grow these resources.

We recognize that the highest level of commitment to diversity in our publishing is critical, and in turn we offer the following pledges:

Diversity in Content. We pledge to ensure that our content reflects the wide spectrum of experiences students and researchers bring to their work.

Accessibility and Inclusion. We pledge to ensure the highest level of accessibility possible within our products so that no learners are left behind regardless of their capability or background.

Diversity of Voices. We pledge to include a range of voices and perspectives within our resources that consider the diversity within gender, religion, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and ability. We aim to work with academics and practitioners from across a diverse range of global intuitions to enable meaningful exchanges of ideas, and to heighten educational and professional attainment for our readers.

Anti-racism and Discrimination. And finally, we aim to publish content within our products that supports anti-racist and anti-discrimination scholarship and practice.

These are aspirational goals, but ones that we are working very hard to achieve. We believe strongly that they are the duty of a responsible publishing company.
