1. Surveying the diversity of NMRT.

The committee recommends determining what types of diversity it wants to measure: diversity based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and disability; diversity based on type of position and type of library. Some coordination may be necessary with the ALA Office for Diversity to measure some of these elements. This will allow the committee and NMRT to determine what type of diversification it needs both in its membership and its programming.

 

2. Collaborative mentoring and diversity.

Consider ways to build mentoring relationships with the Mentoring Committee, as well as approach diverse groups outside of NMRT to sponsor a collaborative mentoring program. It will also be important to collaborate with the Membership Committee and the Liaison and Support Committee.
