Second, please consider completing the MLA Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Task Force Survey. Details are below.
MLA’s Diversity and Inclusion Task Force seeks member responses to a survey gathering perceptions and facts about MLA’s diverse membership, culture, and professional climate.
The survey should take you approximately 10–15 minutes to complete, with a final submission date of October 31, 2019.
Take the survey now: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7BX7DP3
The survey will provide an important snapshot of MLA to inform future conversations among association communities, task forces, and caucuses.
Thank you in advance for your participation! If you have questions about the survey or the work of the task force, please contact Sandra G. Franklin, AHIP, FMLA, chair, Diversity and Inclusion Task Force.
