The Library Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Committee has created the following menu of workshops, online training, and lectures and encourages all library staff to participate in these library- and campus-wide educational opportunities. The committee will monitor participation via sign up sheets, surveys, certificates of completion, etc. Our goal is to increase awareness and understanding of diversity, equality and inclusion within Emory Libraries, LITS, and the Emory community. We piloted the initiative for 2018-2019, and are working with LITS HR to continue formalizing an education program formally recognizes employee efforts to grow in this area.
We invite LITS employees to choose one educational opportunity from at least two different sections listed below (In-person workshops, the Emory Ofice of Equity and Inclusion Online Courses, LinkedInLearning Online Courses at http://it.emory.edu/linkedinlearning, Conference Attendance, Lecture Series).
