Diversity is key to our futures – both within libraries and for the communities that we serve. This session will use the development of ALA’s Center for the Future of Libraries as an opportunity to consider how diversity is key to thinking about the future and how diversity has proven central to the many trends that will shape our futures. With insight from ALA’s Spectrum and Knowledge Alliance recruitment programs, we will look at how our profession can be strengthened by new perspectives that enhance our values and enrich our conversations.
