additional project partners
Constructive Disruption is proud to have worked in partnership with a number of experienced library and government focused consultants. A selection of those additional project partners include:
Rekha Kuver specializes in the areas of community engagement and outreach, programming, social media, youth services, mobile services, and management.
Her passions lie in making library services radically equitable via meaningful community partnerships, as well as in empowering library staff to be forward-thinking and inventive at all levels of their work. Rekha also works with the Primary Source consultancy.
Rekha is a key member of the project team for the 2022-2023 Santa Clara County Library District strategic planning process, focusing on the staff project team and equity, diversity, and inclusion work.
Washington State based Co/Lab Capacity is led by Audrey Barbakoff. Audrey's dissertation research focused on building capacity for equity, diversity, and inclusion in public libraries through community-led planning, serving as the foundation for her CoLaB (Community Led Capacity-Building) process.

Co/Lab Capacity and Constructive Disruption worked together on the 2023-2028 Hood River County Library District Strategic Plan.
