MLA Connect Exploration: Keynote discussions with field leaders exploring the most pressing questions for our field today and into the future.          

Are you curious about diversity audits but don't know where to start? Are you interested in learning more but unsure how they apply to your expertise? This webinar is for you. The webinar will have panelists from various library backgrounds that have completed or participated in a diversity audit. Each presenter will discuss their experience with these audits and then be open to a Q & A afterwards. 

Goal(s)

Attendants will be more aware of diversity audits and understand their value. Attendants will learn what skills are needed and learned through a diversity audit. Participants will also learn what tools are needed when completing an audit.
