Publishers are often viewed as "gatekeepers," but this edition of Transmit Culture will examine how the publishing community can take steps to instead be "gate openers" by breaking patterns of using trauma-inducing language and allowing those who have experienced long-standing inequity to take the lead. How can we as writers, editors, and other publishing professionals make language and design choices that promote discourse that is inclusive, effective, and accountable? 

This panel is inspired in part by Karen Yin's Conscious Style Guide, which promotes "thinking critically about the ways that conscious words, portrayals, framing, and representation can empower ourselves and one another in mass media and interpersonal communications."
