The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. supports the request of our Membership to advocate for increased diversity and equity for our professional community of archivists, librarians and records managers. We support and promote salary transparency for our membership of qualified emerging and established professionals, and aim to ensure that our job board offers positions that balance compensation with job responsibilities, desired education, and experience while providing the New York Metropolitan area with top candidates from our membership base for all levels of employment.
The ART Board voted to discontinue accepting job position submissions to our job board that do not include a salary or salary range; are in violation of US Labor laws; fall below a living wage according to the MIT Living Wage Calculator, or otherwise do not meet current professional best practices.
Effective 6 December 2019, all jobs submitted via the ART job board will be reviewed for compensation transparency; parity between job requirements and compensation; and parity between job description and job title.
ART has created new job submission forms to help guide those submitting jobs online, and will return for adjustments to postings that do not meet our current standards for paid employment and our current standards for student positions, internships, and volunteer opportunities as stated above. Posts that discriminate based on race, gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation, and aim to widen the wage gap between men and women in our profession will also be returned.
The ART Board of Directors invites questions and comments on this newly adopted policy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
