The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) will research and design a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Institute. The outputs will include a curriculum framework and assessment metrics for training content that will be piloted by ARL following the funding period. The audience for the institute will be staff members in cultural heritage and information organizations who want to build inclusive and equitable organizations and advance broader systemic change. The planning grant will leverage an existing ARL framework for competencies in racial equity jointly scoped by ARL, the American Library Association, the Association of College and Research Libraries, and the Public Library Association. The DEI Institute curriculum and supplemental materials, including reports and datasets, will be available through a project website.
