Diversity In Publishing

I rarely (or never) do link-ups here but diversity in publishing, particularly diversity in children's literature, has been such a hot topic and I've been following the conversation with great interest.

I'm asking the same questions of myself and my own work that others are asking, and have been asking for years. Where are the different faces? On the pages and behind them? 

I thought it would be interesting to share the conversation here and ask if you've been reading any articles as well.  Please share any links in the comments.
