52 Association of Research Libraries Research Library Issues 301 2020 Week 10: Your Ongoing Development Positioning Yourself for Your Next Steps Leading in Place Interviewing and Negotiating From Your Vision to Reality DJA’s methodology centers on developing understanding determining the needs of an organization’s internal and external stakeholders and creating measurable, attainable, and transparent action plans to increase inclusion (including strategies to address bad behavior). Dialogue, mentoring, recruitment, and constant reassessment feature heavily in DJA’s strategies for developing long-term buy-in and organizational change. Government Alliance on Race & Equity (GARE) The Government Alliance on Race & Equity (GARE)33 uses a racial equity framework built upon the premise that there is no substitute for doing the work.34 This model includes significant time for pre- work, and internalization. It assumes there are no shortcuts and the work will be done for as long as it takes to produce change. GARE emphasizes that organizations should use racial equity tools as soon as possible to prevent problems and provide a variety of case studies in their supplemental materials highlighted below.35 Also listed below is GARE’s “Six-Part Strategic Approach to Institutional Change.” GARE’s publication Advancing Racial Equity in Public Libraries: Case Studies from the Field provides multiple examples and case studies of how the GARE framework is being used create and drive action plans in public libraries.36 Other Issue Paper publications, found in the Tools & Resources section of GARE’s website, that may interest readers highlight their work with local governments and public sector jobs.37
