The LITS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee is continuing our efforts to fulfill our three-fold charge (building a diverse team, arranging professional development opportunities for our staff, and providing diverse and inclusive services and resources).

In order to keep us all mindful of DEI issues, members of the Committee will be providing LITS with weekly emails on timely topics, interesting articles, upcoming webinars, workshop highlights, etc. Each email will have a brief summary sentence or two, a link (if applicable), and a reflection question or comment.

We ask that you take a few minutes out of your busy week to read these emails and consider its application to you and your work/home/family/... The subject line for each of these emails will be the same as this one: “DEI and LITS - Continuing our DEI Journey.”
