​LYRASIS Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) are core values at LYRASIS. Our mission, to catalyze and enable equitable access to the world’s knowledge and cultural heritage, can only be achieved by inviting and valuing the perspectives, experiences, and identities of all people. As such, we are committed to seeking and welcoming diversity in our recruiting, hiring, and culture building practices to create an environment that is equitable, inclusive, and accessible for all.

LYRASIS works to fulfill this commitment through:

  • Recruiting and interviewing a diverse candidate pool for any and all open positions
  • Enacting robust non-discriminatory practices for hiring, retention and evaluation of team members
  • Welcoming the input and participation from the diverse members of our programs and services communities 
  • Creating and supporting a staff-directed DEIA committee to identify and address opportunities and challenges to building equity
  • Identifying opportunities and enacting solutions to make our work and workplace more diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible
