ACRL ULS PDC: Introducing Conversations About Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to Personnel at a Mid-Sized Academic Library
During the spring 2021 semester, librarians and instructional designers at W Frank Steely Library at Northern Kentucky University facilitated a series of focused conversations with library personnel centered on introducing ideas of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (IDEA) related to different workflows and functions in our library (collections, hiring/leadership, customer service, and teaching). At the conclusion of the conversation series, a list of actionable items was generated and shared with the entire library. Presenters will describe their experience, as four white women, facilitating these conversations, including their challenges and share best practices for creating safe spaces for meaningful discussion. Presenters will discuss next steps and how we are turning these conversations into actionable and measurable library wide projects. The program will conclude with a brief discussion on initiating these challenging, but crucial conversations when your organization has historically lacked diversity.
