CHICAGO — The ALA Task Force on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion was
created in the spring of 2014 by then ALA President Barbara Stripling.
Before moving forward with programs, actions or recommendations, the
members of the Task Force on Equity, Diversity & Inclusion believe it is
important to understand the culture of the association, the profession and
our communities with respect to equity, diversity, and inclusion. Our short
surveys are an opportunity to include input and ideas from the professional
community, while complementing the rich data collection efforts of the
larger association.

We recognize that incidents of racial bias and injustice continue to occur
across the country on a regular basis.  This third survey, however, focuses
on the economic implications of participating in ALA functions.

The survey can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TEDI3.

Responses will be collected through *March 18, 2015*.

ALA members and non-members are encouraged to participate.

Please take a few minutes to answer the survey, which should take no more
than seven minutes to complete.

“Embracing and celebrating diversity and creating a more inclusive
profession have been long-standing goals of the American Library
Association. With your help, we hope to ensure these values are upheld,”
said Task Force co-Chairs Trevor A. Dawes and Martin L. Garnar.

Questions about the survey can be sent to the Task Force at
diversity at ala.org.

Should technical issues arise, please contact the ALA Office for Research
and Statistics at ors at ala.org or call 1 (800) 545-2433. ext. 4273
