The ALA Office for Diversity, Literacy, and Outreach Services has launched the EDI Speakers Bureau, an online resource that highlights experts from the library profession who are available to speak on topics surrounding equity, diversity, and inclusion. The 2017 Class of Emerging Leaders was tasked with establishing this database of individuals who can who can speak on these topics. While the database is managed by ODLOS, these speakers are not vetted by ALA, nor do they speak on behalf of the Association. Users may nominate a speaker to be added to the EDI Speakers Bureau.
