Political reality: to work in #libraries in the US and to work toward digital equity and #erate is to engage in a "battle of ideas"

Hastings: we're not yet aware of the value of diversity and inclusion. Again, the larger meaning beyond just reaching quotas #lisdiversity
Problem isn't about numbers or data; we don't "reflect the complexion of the people we serve" #lisdiversity
Hastings: 8% of US library workforce reflects only 40% of our population #lisdiversity @iDiversityUMD
