Abstract: Shared leadership and effective partnering were proposed by Sandra Balderrama, ALA Diversity Offices in the last issue of the EMIE Bulletin as a strategy to advance the work of diversity and libraries. In our continuing expl?ration on "Uniting Multicultural V?ices in Libraries" I want to highlight the multicultural work that EMIERT and ALA are conducting, work that is collaborative in nature. ? the Midwinter meeting, Chair-Elect J. B. Petty and I attended the Diversity Congress hosted by the ALA Council Committee on Minority Concerns and Cultural Diversity with facilitator Lou Wetherbee. It has set in motion a dial?gue among the different ALA units and affiliates which have traditionally worked independently to address diversity and libraries, facilitated an exchange of information and identification of common concerns, and created a framework for collective planning continued exchange and potential collaboration to learn more about the Diversity Congress, see
