Library Human Resources Diversity Statement
At the UCSB Library, we believe that one characteristic of a leading, progressive workforce is its commitment to diversity and equal opportunity. The library recognizes that the full potential of our employees can only be realized when each individual is treated with kindness, honesty, and mutual respect. Diversity is the key to our continued growth and success. Success happens when employees work in an atmosphere that fosters and celebrates inclusion, where differences are not just encouraged and appreciated, but embraced. Hiring and retaining people from diverse backgrounds, cultures, experiences, and lifestyles empowers our organization, shapes our future, and lead to brilliant minds and different perspectives.
Our collective diversity is our greatest strength and distinction.
