Abstract:Our presentation will bring together a panel of diverse and global views on diversity from a broad set of racial, cultural, and geographic perspectives. While there is a growing body of research that supports the value of more diverse work environments, less is known about the conditions necessary to support the success of new LIS professionals that help diversify their work environments, what challenges library organizations face in inviting this diversity, and what can be done to best support these LIS professionals and their organizations.
