Diversity Definition
For the upcoming Year of Learning, diversity refers to “the participation of individuals in organizations, regardless of race, ethnicity, or gender. It also includes persons who are physically challenged as well as those who are concerned about sexual orientation.” [David E. Robinson, A School Library Diversity Model and Assessment Guide, 2019]
