EDI Task Force: Expanding Representation: ALSC’s Equity Fellows Program

Nicole Rawlinson

Abstract


The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) within ALSC Implementation task force exists to heighten visibility, increase opportunities, and eliminate challenges to participation within ALSC for BIPOC library workers.

The task force supports ALSC’s charge to implement EDI practices while diversifying membership and future leadership. It aims to mitigate the impacts to participation associated with costs, perceived accessibility, and lack of diversity, while developing pathways to ALSC membership and leadership opportunities. Through the task force’s work, one of the main initiatives to increase BIPOC representation within the organization was realized through the development of the Equity Fellows program.
