Diversity, Equity & Inclusion - Educational Offerings Menu

Information about Diversity, Equity & Inclusion educational opportunities for Libraries & LITS employees

What is the DEI Menu?

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, and the Emory community. We piloted the initiative for 2018-2019, and continue to work with Emory Libraries HR with formalizing an education program that recognizes employee efforts to grow in this area.

How should I use it?

We invite Emory Library staff and faculty to choose one educational opportunity from at least two different sections listed below. It can be In-person workshops, the Emory Office of Equity and Inclusion Online Courses, Conference Attendance, Lecture Series, and more.

For example:
