The Campus Library DEI Implementation Working Group advises on policies and initiatives to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in our library services and spaces. Our focus for 2023-2024 is to identify key areas for action from an Anti-Racism Audit (conducted in 2022 by an external consultant), and to recommend a process and structure for setting and achieving DEI-related goals.
Working Group Members: Joanne Chern, Silvia Eddings, Nia Lam (project coordinator), Myra Waddell, Nicholas Whale
The Campus Library supports staff participation in a variety of DEI professional development activities. This includes programs offered through our Campus partners and many external organizations.
Recent examples of activities in which our staff have been engaged:
