Diversity and Inclusion Speaker Series
Congratulations to National Jewish Health for receiving a Diversity and Inclusion Award to present a Diversity and Inclusion Speaker Series. Library & Knowledge Services supports the clinical, research, and educational programs of National Jewish Health (NJH), a preeminent health care institution in Denver, Colorado. In 2016, employees of NJH founded a Diversity and Inclusion Council in order to promote a climate of respect, understanding, and value for members of the NJH community. The council’s objectives include providing D&I trainings, outreach, and educational opportunities. One of our medical librarians is a member of the council and serves on the Education Subcommittee. Funding from this grant would support two related projects: 1) to fund one or more speakers to come to NJH to provide educational sessions on diversity and inclusion topics, and 2) to launch a dedicated D&I print collection to be housed in the medical library. The success of this project will also help showcase the library as a valuable asset to the institution and its goals of promoting D&I.
