BWG Library Equity Audit

_

Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Library is pleased to announce that it is undertaking an Equity Audit, which is an important part of our commitment to best serve our increasingly diverse community and foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for all library users and staff. The recommendations from the Equity Audit will help guide the Library’s work in the years to come to ensure our programs and service serve the diverse BWG community. 

 

The Library has identified several areas of focus for this Equity Audit, including:

  • Programming,
  • Policies and procedures,
  • Social media and promotions,
  • Outreach, and
  • Library collection development.

 

This audit will include consultations with the community, the Board, and staff in order to provide a clearer picture of where the Library is and the path forward to ensure it is doing its best to be a leader and champion of diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism in the community.
