Abstract
​Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as an aggregate concern presents both opportunities and challenges for cultural heritage organizations. In an effort to gauge current policies and practices regarding DEI, LYRASIS surveyed its membership of more than 1,000 galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAM) institutions about their activities in three distinct areas: policy and infrastructure; recruiting, training, and retaining a diverse staff; and maintaining/building diverse collections.​The core output of this survey is the 2020 LYRASIS DEI Survey Report. This report provides institutions with an opportunity to see where their efforts fall amongst the activities of their peers, and a potential method for categorizing DEI initiatives.
