Listening Session: State Library Equity Framework


The State Library is developing an equity framework to assess and improve our policies and services, remove barriers and address potential bias, and better serve communities that experience racial disparity and oppression. We invite the library community to learn about the State Library’s draft equity framework and share ideas, comments, and questions about the draft. Comments and questions from people of color and communities that have been historically marginalized will be prioritized. Feedback received from the session will be used to shape the final product.
