SESSION 506 - Enhancing Diversity Through Discussion: Adapting the ARL Leadership Symposium Experience

Each year, the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) holds a Leadership Symposium for MLIS students to discuss the meaning of diversity in information environments. This special focus session reproduces that experience through small and large group discussions on such topics as redefining the meaning of "diversity" and student outreach through diversity initiatives. Participants expect to develop strategies for fostering diversity within archival environments, design mentorship models, and form a peer network for future collaborations.
