Abstract: Embracing diversity is seen as an unequivocal good. Making diversity one of the keystones of library strategy, however, is not only good – it is a source of power. This presentation describes research that points to diverse workforces having competitive, creative, and strategic advantage and provide stimulus for conversation at The Ohio State University Libraries about what it means to have diversity as part of strategic direction. What does "diversity" mean in action, word, and initiative? Some starting points for dialogue at OSU Libraries will be included. Kathryn Deiss, the presenter, is the Association of College and Resource Libraries' (ACRL) content strategist.
