Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Librarian.

Through a participatory Strategic Directions development process in 2018, the Libraries committed to better understanding and fostering a more inclusive workplace. As one element in our efforts, the DEI Librarian position will help the Libraries’ team members recognize, understand, value and embrace our differences as crucial to our communal work. As part of the development and implementation of a DEI program for the Libraries, the DEI Librarian will serve as the Libraries’ Campus Diversity Liaison (CDL), working within a network of peer positions from across the University as well as serving as a liaison within the Libraries. We seek a capacity builder who will create, in collaboration with people of diverse cultural backgrounds and origins, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, and perspectives, meaningful dialogue and change.

The DEI Librarian will participate in national dialogues within the United States and globally that promote the establishment of professional practices in libraries and programs to enhance the opportunities of minority and underrepresented groups in the library profession.
