The authors acknowledge a commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. During our development processes, the authors undertook substantial efforts to properly represent genders, races, cultures, geographies, ethnic backgrounds, disabilities, nationalities, ages, sexual orientations, socio-economic status, and diverse viewpoints in our book. We acknowledge that even a well-informed and well-meaning author can misstate or misconceive diversity/representation issues, and have followed established guidelines and frameworks in order to mitigate that potential.
Our framework includes a commitment to representation and diversity in:
- Illustrations, photographs, videos
- Example names
- Historical, pioneering, or current researchers/studies in the field.
- References/bibliography, and credits to diverse researchers/authors.
- Applications, examples, and problem scenarios that relate to diverse audiences.
- Appropriate Terminology
