Review your library’s diversity and inclusion statement. If your library does not have one consider drafting a statement that indicates the organization’s commitment to inclusion.
Create rubrics to ensure consistency when reviewing new-hire applications. Also use scripts during the interview process to minimize bias-based favoritism.
Promote training that enhances cultural competency.
Ensure that library displays and instructional materials reflect a commitment to inclusion.
Develop formal mentorship initiatives. Mentors often become invested in their mentee's success, regardless of demographic or cultural differences.
