C4DISC is a community comprised of consortial groups such as societies and associations whose membership is composed of individuals, companies, or organizations, and whose mission and membership are related to scholarly communications. The Coalition was formed to discuss and address issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) within our industry.
The Association of University Presses (AUPresses) will provide legal standing and other appropriate services and management as needed. C4DISC is facilitated by Convener Melanie Dolechek, in concert with the appointed member representatives, who provide its direction and oversight as the Steering Committee.
The Steering Committee is responsible for:
- Policy decisions
- Financial decisions
- Creating working groups and appointing leads/chairs
The C4DISC Organizational Guide summarizes the key decisions made by the Founding Organization representatives to date regarding their work together. C4DISC commits to maintaining transparency via posting minutes from meetings publicly using its website.
