A Demographic Assessment of the 2022 Library Publishing ForumBy Nancy Adams
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee of the Library Publishing Coalition (LPC) is excited to share with the wider LPC community a summary of responses to our 2022 Library Publishing Forum (LPF) Demographic Survey. This survey was based on the LPC Roadmap for Anti-Racist Practice (bit.ly/2022LPCRoadmap), which charged the DEI Committee to conduct a brief demographic assessment of the 2022 Forum. The survey was distributed to all Forum attendees and presenters to help the LPC create a baseline understanding of who attends the annual LPF. The goal of the survey was to create a demographic assessment of our annual forum to ensure we are building DEI into existing structures, registration forms, and list of speakers.
As a follow up to this work, we share the report-out details of this assessment. Please see the report and contact the DEI committee (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or concerns.
