In this presentation attendees will learn what a diversity audit is, why we should audit our collections, why the structure of the publishing industry may make it difficult to cultivate inclusivity, and most importantly, why it’s important to not stop at diversity, but to make sure that our collections are inclusive as well. We’ll look into the logistics of performing these audits, then you’ll be given some resources to help you identify inclusive titles. Because Kym is a youth consultant many of the examples and titles will fall into the youth category, but the principles are scalable to any collection.
Presented by Kymberlee Powe, Children and YA Consultant with the Connecticut State Library.
