In order to achieve true diversity and to avoid using token characters to serve diverse purposes, it's important to understand what diversity actually means and how not to present diverse characters. How do we achieve a natural-feeling cast of characters? What challenges do authors face when developing characters who come from different backgrounds? And how can they become more aware of their own biases seeping into their fiction?
