Call for Feedback on ACRL EDI Signature Initiative

The ACRL Board of Directors is seeking input on the development of the association’s Signature Initiative on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI). During the Leadership Council meeting at the 2018 ALA Midwinter Meeting, the Board solicited comments from leaders across the association regarding equity, diversity, and social justice related concerns within their libraries and institutions, as well as suggestions for how ACRL might better support these efforts. The Board has reviewed and digested those suggestions and encourages you to respond to a new poll to provide additional input.

The poll focuses on a variety of programmatic elements that ACRL could pursue as part of the EDI Signature Initiative, and we would appreciate your help in prioritizing where we should begin. Please complete the 5-to-7 minute poll by June 29, 2018, in advance of the Board’s Fall Strategic Planning Meeting. We hope to also convene a virtual membership meeting to review the results early in the fall.


Thank you very much for your input in helping us move forward on these vital issues.
