The Diversity Committee: Your Library’s Competitive Advantage

A strong Diversity Committee has the ability to become the cornerstone in creating an inclusive environment for any organization. This session discusses  the possibilities for a Diversity Committee’s impact, from gaining buy-in from the organization leadership, to forming the committee, establishing mission statements and goals, introducing the committee, its mission and goals to the organizational community, and on to planning programs and activities.  This recorded webcast is part of the Office for Diversity’s Diversity Leadership Online series.
