EDI STATEMENT APPROVED BY BOARD
The Executive Board considered and adopted an EDI (Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) statement at the December board meeting. The statement was drafted by an ad hoc committee, formed in July 2020, which was also charged with recommending future EDI-related activities in Wyoming libraries.
The committee will continue to explore EDI issues and will update the statement annually. More information on resources, committee membership, and activities will be housed on the WLA website.
