Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Series Program Group (DEISPG)

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Series Program Group has been formed to support the John F. Helmer Professional Development Award funded Speaker Series focused on the intersection between DEI issues and Libraries, Discovery, and User Experience.

Please visit their dedicated page for details on dates, speakers, and topics, as well as links to recordings of the sessions once they have been delivered.

DEI Speaker Series 2021


Under direction of the DUX Team, the DEI Series Program Group (DEISPG) will coordinate and promote a Helmer grant-funded selected speaker series targeted to the Alliance DUX community, but available to all Alliance members, on concepts related to creating an inclusive library environment. For details please refer to the grant proposal.


The project group is of limited duration, and will complete their work between February and August of 2021.
