Hampton University will build the capacity of libraries to develop and implement practices and initiatives that change, evolve, and improve the experiences of people of color (POC) working within the Library and Information Science field. Project participants will receive guidance on developing, implementing, and assessing an equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) initiative that addresses the recruitment, retention, and inclusion of POC within their libraries. The project results will serve as a collection of actionable initiatives that can be shared throughout the field. With guidance from an advisory board consisting of EDI experts and library leaders, the project will include virtual meetings, individual site visits, assessment, and a follow-up meeting to discuss participant initiatives and experiences.
