ARL recognizes the difficulties that the profession has in attracting a diverse workforce and continues to
work actively in the development of workplace climates that embrace diversity. The ARL Diversity Programs,
through its Leadership and Career Development Program and the Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce,
emphasize ARL’s and its members’ commitment to creating a diverse academic and research library community
to better meet the new challenges of global competition and changing demographics. Further, the Diversity
Programs focus on issues surrounding work relationships in libraries while considering the impact of diversity
on library services, interactions with library users, and the development of collections. More information about
the Diversity Programs can be found at http://www.arl.org/diversity/.
