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/.
