Interesting to see the ethical principles include impartiality (in the US, some have viewed ‘neutrality’ as a barrier to upholding diversity principles)
jennifer boettcher
24:21
The flip side means that you need to recognize the Apprenticeships same as academic credentials.
Jamie Lin
24:25
^ Interesting point! I also noticed the "E" stands for equality, which differs from equity in the US
Lisa Martin
25:48
yes, Jamie, I noticed that as well. I wasn’t sure if it was a cross-country/cultural difference or a difference in values
Diana Schapiro, SLA

What about hiring from newer members of the community? It will bring in much diversity.
Colleen Hailey
43:58
Are you doing any audit of your collections, regarding inclusion of BAME authors and subjects?
michael sholinbeck
44:00
q about the BAME network: was it a “top down” directive, or did it arise “organically” from your membership and/or staff? thanks
Hema Ramachandran

Shame no library - I started my career as a librarian in the UK, actually at the Poly of North London, and remember using the Library Association Library.
Jamie Lin

Thanks, Clara, this was my question too!
Sarah Braun

Such a good question, Clara!
Andrew Grissom
52:12
Did you get external expertise (like legal counsel) to navigate those laws/regulations as a charity organization?
Lisa Martin
52:24
With a 97% white membership, how do you avoid pressuring and burning out your BAME members in making these significant changes?
Andrew Grissom
54:03
Thank you! I work for a non-profit organization and we have to walk those tricky lines often. :)
