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. One way that ARL achieves this end is
through the work of the ARL Diversity Program. The ARL Diversity Program through its Leadership and Career
Development Program and the Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce, emphasizes 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 program focuses 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 program can be found at
http://www.arl.org/diversity/.
ClimateQUAL® is an assessment initiative that focuses on some of the same issues. ClimateQUAL® is the
statistics and assessment program’s tool that assesses organizational climate and diversity in libraries.
ClimateQUAL® helps libraries plumb the dimensions of climate and organizational culture important for a
healthy organization in a library setting. The ClimateQUAL® survey addresses climate issues such as diversity,
teamwork, learning, and fairness, as well as current managerial practices, and staff attitudes and beliefs.
Libraries use their ClimateQUAL® data to improve their organizational climate and diversity culture for
delivering superior services to the communities they serve. More information about ClimateQUAL® can be
found at http://www.climatequal.org.
