LYRASIS Trending Topics: Building a Diversity Plan

Most organizations, including academic libraries, speak to diversity and inclusion in their mission statement or core values. However, many organizations struggle to put this mission or value into practice. An organizational diversity plan is a way of collecting and comparing everything an organization is saying, doing and learning related to diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility (DEIA). Done well, it can become a powerful part of the organizational story and brand and set a trajectory that allows an organization to bravely advance in issues of DEIA. This session will explore not only the building blocks of a good diversity plan, but also address suggested practices of establishing by-in, managing organizational engagement and ensuring continuous improvement.
