The Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, & Accessibility (IDEA) Task Force is charged with providing education and advocacy about inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility issues that serve the interests of the association and its membership. This task force will reach out to members, coordinate efforts with existing MiALA entities such as Committees and Interest Groups, and make recommendations to the Board of Directors.
The task force’s work may include:
Applying association best practices for inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility.
Encouraging and facilitating diversity within MiALA and the profession as a whole within the state of Michigan.
Review and offer recommendations to make the MiALA Annual Conference more inclusive, more accessible, and welcoming to all. This work will include the creation of a code of conduct.
Develop proposals to increase participation from library students, support staff, and traditionally underrepresented groups.
