University of Denver's Library and Information School, in partnership with University of South Carolina and the University of Colorado-Boulder, will research and address employment inequities for disabled and neurodiverse librarians. The study will examine employment experiences of disabled and neurodiverse recent graduates during their Master’s in Library and Information Sciences program and upon graduation; library managers’ preparedness for working with disabled and neurodiverse employees; peers’ attitudes toward working with disabled and neurodiverse colleagues; and current workplace policies. The project team will create guidelines for policy change (i.e., equitable and inclusive job advertisement, application, interviewing, and onboarding), and develop a practice model for an equitable workplace transition program, integrating remote opportunities discovered during the pandemic.
