Diversity and Inclusion Library

Creating a safe climate of understanding and respect differences in ethnic and racial heritages, gender, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, and physical disabilities is a central value of Action Research. As part of our diversity and inclusion initiative, the intent of the AR Diversity and Inclusion Library is to create an environment for our staff where awareness of one’s cultural, gender, and religious identity are the norm, as well as to promote a deeper understanding and respect of others’ differences. Digital access to the library is available for AR staff (and hopefully other shortly) on books, resources and articles on many topics. Some example topics are race and ethnicity, race and ethnicity in public policy and child welfare, gender and sexual orientation, religiosity/spirituality, among other topics.
