Panel: The Inclusion and Leadership Nexus: Leadership Development and Retention for Diverse Academic and Research Librarians
Thursday, March 26, 2015 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
This panel explores the effect of leadership development training (LDT) on the retention of academic and research librarians from historically underrepresented groups. An extensive mapping project reveals the extent to which these constituencies have engaged in formal LDT and identifies common trajectories for those who also benefitted from diversity recruitment programs. A panel of academic librarians at different stages in their careers will discuss their experiences. Demographic statistics of academic/research library leaders will be analyzed.
Primary Speaker: Mark A. Puente, Director of Diversity and Leadership Programs, Association of Research Libraries
