Leadership and Career Development Program


The ARL Leadership and Career Development Program (LCDP) is a yearlong program to prepare mid-career librarians from historically underrepresented racial and ethnic groups to take on leadership roles in their careers and in the profession at large. Since ARL launched the LCDP in 1997, a large percentage of alumni have assumed significantly expanded responsibilities within their institutions and/or within professional organizations. The ARL LCDP addresses the need for greater representation of people of color in leadership of research libraries and archives. Moreover, the program is building a broader community of career coaches and mentors, supervisors, directors, and other champions of the program with greater cultural proficiency and deeper understanding of the systemic barriers to creating authentically inclusive environments.
