2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 As a result of extensive planning and research, including an environmental scan, development of a logic mode, and cross-sector survey, the CPRE Task Force has developed the Building Cultural Proficiencies for Racial Equity framework. The framework is designed to provide a comprehensive set of steps and best practices that inform EDI-centered library work.  Rooted in an approach that engages institutions of all types, the framework provides action steps for coalescing EDI engagement, whether those efforts are informal/grassroots, formal initiatives, or in the initial planning stages.
