The Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging Collection

The Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging Collection comprises books, films, and other resources that foster communication and discussion on diversity, inclusion, and belonging at HKS, and that represent and celebrate the multitude of identities and backgrounds that make up our vibrant community. It features texts that highlight the direct experiences – whether joyful, painful, or otherwise – of those who have faced systemic marginalization and oppression, historically and/or today; and it primarily focuses on literary nonfiction, memoirs, essays, as well as fiction.

The collection is driven primarily by input from members of the HKS community as well as key partners, such as the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging (ODIB) and Institutional Antiracist and Accountability (IARA) initiative within the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation.

The DIB Collection is available for browsing online, in HOLLIS, and in-person in the HKS Library Commons.
