Pratt Library's Advancing Equity Toolkit

In partnership with Associated Black Charities and made possible due to the funding received by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Pratt developed its Advancing Equity Toolkit. This toolkit is intended to help guide program development and revision to ensure the needs of diverse communities are met. It provides a guide that details the needs of urban communities like Baltimore City, a checklist, and a worksheet to help guide program implementation through an equity lens.
