We also provide training and guidance to staff on accessibility services.

The EEO Intake form is available online here for complaints of discrimination, harassment, hostile work environment, and other EEO concerns.

Transformation must occur on the individual, collective, and institutional levels, and the Pratt Library can help achieve true and sustained equity through intentional and systemic library-community partnerships.

The DEI office aims to assist in the building of a diversified workforce, to focus on the people and culture to assist the Pratt Library in operationalizing DEI system wide, and to impact change within the community and the Library's internal structures.

“One of the hardest things to accept, acknowledge, manage and learn from is our own unconscious bias.”

Rachel Scheuerman — Director of Projects and Special Initiatives

“At the Pratt, our business is access. That access may come in the form of a book, a website, or maybe a person. We find the resources to help people achieve their goals.”

Meghan McCorkell — Chief of Marketing, Communications, & Strategy

“Building community, collections and services is what we do, providing equitable access to these resources is Pratt's responsibility.”
