Hi everyone,

Here are my ideas that can be further developed for the strategies.  :)  Feel free to use or discard as needed.

FEEDBACK: STRATEGY 5 OUTCOMES

ALA committees, divisions, offices, and roundtables will report on the status of diversity in their units and receive feedback on their diversity policies and practices in regular reports. 

 

FEEDBACK: STRATEGY 6 OUTCOMES

Show improvement in the diversity of applicant pools via student exiting surveys and library employers.

 

FEEDBACK: STRATEGY 10 OUTCOMES

An increased number of engaged diverse librarians and support staff that are able to demonstrate the added value obtained through EDI initiatives.
