Toward Inclusive Excellence explores issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion, particularly, though not exclusively, as they affect the higher education community. This new content strand incorporates weekly blog posts as well as podcasts and webinars, in which contributors explore the intricacies of racial identity as they relate to implicit bias, systemic racism, and ableism, among other pertinent topics. Among the goals of this channel is the development of a pool of knowledge and actionable resources for information professionals, administrators, faculty, and others seeking to understand racism from new perspectives and to promote racial justice on their campuses and across the professional community.
