This presentation will explore the myriad of benefits of Diversity and Inclusion in libraries. A well trained and professionally developed staff helps to illuminate libraries in the community, cultivates awareness, creates a safe and welcoming space for people of color and marginalized groups. Diversity and Inclusion within libraries opens the door for collaboration, exploration, creation of new strategies to advance missions, learning and innovation. The results can appear in the form of more enhanced services, programs, resources and recruiting that reflects that of a strong culture of diversity.
