Design for Diversity at Code4Lib 2020

Amanda presented “Design for Diversity: Towards More Inclusive Information Systems” on March 9th at Code4Lib 2020 in Pittsburgh, PA.

This talk presented resources from Design for Diversity, an IMLS-funded project exploring strategies for the development of more inclusive information systems in libraries, archives, and museums. We explored two main points of impact: the education of new practitioners, and opportunities for change in the workplace. We collected case studies and study paths, created specifically for the Design for Diversity project, with additional pointers to exemplary readings and projects in our online Toolkit. Through this Toolkit, we explored key moments where practitioners can make decisions that lead to more inclusive information systems.
