ALSC (Association for Library Services to Children, a division of ALA) is seeking respondents to an anonymous survey on diversity in ALSC (and barriers to participation to diverse populations). I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I ranted my entire way through these answers. If you have a second, please take some time to fill it out for yourself. Original email and link below.
The Diversity within ALSC Task Force is conducting a survey to gain a better understanding of the current ALSC membership as well as other youth services providers outside the membership.
The purpose of this survey is to discern where we stand with diversity within the children's library services profession, and to determine barriers to joining ALSC. It is our hope that by discovering barriers we can work to break them down to create a more inclusive, diverse membership, and eventually, profession.
This survey is voluntary, confidential, and anonymous. No personally identifiable information is captured and all responses will be aggregated and summarized into a report.
We would like to compile as much information as possible, and we hope that you will consider participating in the survey.
Please feel free to share with colleagues in order to help us reach the greatest possible audience. The survey will be live until Tuesday, December 20th.
