63 Association of Research Libraries Research Library Issues 301 2020 All ARL leadership and organizational development programs are being designed with the diversity, equity, and inclusion lens. This is evident in the soon to be relaunched Leadership Fellows program. The Association policies and practices are under review and the recent changes to the committee and task force recruitment process reflects the Association’s work to ensure structural equity. This includes strengthening partnerships with research libraries in historically Black colleges and universities and in Hispanic-serving institutions, as well as working with library associations representing Black, Indigenous, and People of Color colleagues. With so few Black, Indigenous, and People of Color leaders and staff members, our profession has much to do to create the diverse and inclusive cultures that represent the communities we serve and the full range of talent in our society. ARL is committed now and for the long term. Endnotes 1.
