Salaries & Diversity in Publishing 2014

Are you paying too much for talent? Losing valuable talent? What is the breakout of total compensation for employees in management, editorial, sales, marketing, production?

What is the status of diversity in publishing? Does it make any difference if there are advocates for diversity at all levels of management?

Join Publishers Weekly editorial director Jim Milliot, author of the PW Publishing Industry Salary Survey 2014, in a lively, frank discussion of publishing salaries and diversity in publishing.

For the first time, the annual Publishers Weekly salary survey asked respondents to identify their race, and all compensation information shows the breakdown, along with gender, company size, region and more.

Also for the first time, PW asked a host of questions about perceptions of diversity within the publishing industry.

\tFind out the consensus—or lack of consensus—about these and other key issues: \t

  • Does the publishing industry suffer from a lack of racial diversity?
  • \t
  • Does lack of diversity among editors impact the lack of diversity in the titles published?
  • \t
  • Does creating greater diversity require advocates at all levels of the business including management, editorial, marketing, sales, booksellers and librarians?
  • \t
  • Does lack of diversity among senior-level managers impact the lack of diversity in the titles published?
