Abstract:The Center for Digital Inclusion views the concepts of inclusion, diversity, and leadership as inextricably linked. All of these concepts describe ways of relating to both ourselves and other people with the purpose of fostering greater understanding of, and improving, the human condition. As practices, inclusion, diversity, and leadership require that we start with ourselves in examining power and privilege before we attempt to develop an ethics of looking outward to our interactions and relationships with other people. Inclusion, diversity and leadership also require that we examine institutional and structural power as a force that is always operating in conjunction with individual actions. These resources are offered in support of fostering linkages between inclusion, diversity, and leadership, and are for use by students as well as by instructors in designing curricula and lesson plans. These resources are not meant to be comprehensive; rather this is a dynamic repository for sharing readings, exercises, and knowledge around diversity, inclusion and leadership in our library and information science community.
