Many library associations recognize the importance of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI), including the Illinois Library Association, Public Library Association, and American Library Association.
In response to the Associations’ call to action, many libraries have committed to EDI work which regularly translates to training for staff and issuing broad statements. While these are important steps, library staff have reported they are unclear about how to apply what they have learned to their daily work.
To combat this, the Downers Grove Public Library has developed an EDI Decision-Making Tool to help staff members and the Board of Trustees when beginning the decision-making process.
In this webinar, staff from the Downers Grove Public Library will present their experience implementing and utilizing the EDI Decision-Making Tool. They will also explore ways to incorporate it into your library operations.
