Initative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce awarded to Marcela Estevez

In an effort to appeal to individuals of diverse backgrounds and ethnicities, The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has undertaken the Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce. ARL believes that a multicultural focus within the scope of the library will offer a more comprehensive reflection of the dynamic demographics associated with the field of research and academic libraries.
