Association of Research Libraries (ARL): “Fall Forum Plants Seeds for Change in Talent Management through Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging”
From an ARL Post by Jerrell Jones:
Visible by months of diligent program formation, intentional speaker selection, and a highly engaged participant group. The theme of talent management through diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging provided an impetus for discussions that planted seeds for real change. Diverse academic library staff and the patrons they serve will benefit from the knowledge shared at the ARL Fall Forum and experience more equitable and inclusive libraries, even if the knowledge must travel or incubate before being implemented. As the 2021 Julia C. Blixrud Scholarship recipient, I am honored to have received the award and the opportunity to meaningfully engage with library leaders and other professionals committed to making libraries the dynamic safe havens they should be.
