Promoting Diversity in Librarianship

Associate Dean of Research & User Engagement, Janet H. Clarke, recently participated in a professional networking event for graduate library science students at Queens College. The event featured members of the American Library Association’s ethnic caucuses, Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA), Black Caucus of the American Library Association (BCALA), Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA), and The National Association to Promote Library and Information Services to Latinos and the Spanish-speaking (REFORMA). The caucuses share a common vision of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice that we promote in the profession and in our communities. The goal of the networking event was to introduce the students to the important work of ALA’s ethnic caucuses and to encourage them to become actively involved in the profession early in their careers.
