Appendix A: Diversity Equity and Inclusion

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:

  1. Illustrations, photographs, videos
  2. Example names
  3. Historical, pioneering, or current researchers/studies in the field.
  4. References/bibliography, and credits to diverse researchers/authors.
  5. Applications, examples, and problem scenarios that relate to diverse audiences.
  6. Appropriate Terminology
