The Independent Publishers Guild said  'Emerald Publishing is shortlisted for a diversification of its publishing and books on important topics including disability and mental health in the black community'. The judges also liked Emerald’s efforts to cut its gender pay gap, many progressive working policies and measures to reduce unconscious bias in recruitment.
