I am an experienced diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) consultant for library and information organizations (LIOs). I specialize in assisting LIOs with assessing their DEI efforts, utilizing the DEISAA as an assessment tool to aid the process. Organizations interested in utilizing the DEISAA outside of a consultation setting are free to do. The DEISAA can be made available for this type of use. Organizations interested in receiving assistance with altering the DEISAA to better meet their needs, or who require additional expertise to conduct their organizational assessment (including interpretation and next steps), should reach out to discuss their needs. Please note that I have limited availability at this time for consultations and am currently scheduled through December 2021. I am happy to discuss future consultation needs and also provide suggestions for alternative consultants who may also meet your needs.
