Representation matters. Own Voices matters. As bearers of knowledge and information for children, it is imperative that a bookstore’s inventory reflects the experiences of all kinds of people to cultivate cultural awareness and empathy in youth. One step toward a more inclusive collection of books is to conduct a diversity audit on your store’s inventory. This session will teach attendees how to:

  • Assess their inventory
  • Conduct an audit
  • Identify where attention needs to be focused
  • Use an audit to inform the ordering process
