The description of the event.

Many libraries are committed to DEI initiatives, but may be trying to implement them in ways that lack strategy or specificity. The ALA states that diversity plans are important for demonstrating that diversity is integral to our libraries, but many libraries may not know where, or how, to start. In this session, we'll cover why your library should have a diversity plan and how you can take steps to draft one. We will focus on concepts, like why it is important to make the language in your plan explicit, as well as practices, like how to craft action items that will guide the direction of your library. Participants will leave with practical information they can use in their libraries. Suitable for all types of librarians.
