Webinar: Equity-Based Library Policies Workshop
Wednesday 13 January 2021, 10:00am - 12:00pm
Contact Jillian Rutledge

Wednesday, January 13th, 10 am - noon

The Committee for Diversity and Inclusion is excited to announce a powerful and crucial workshop for Iowa libraries. Researcher and educator Dr. Adrienne Coleman of Candid Conversations Matter will lead a two hour workshop focused on developing equity based policies in our libraries. Rooted in Inclusive Excellence, Racial Justice and approached through an Equity-Minded Lens this workshop will instruct learners on how to examine patterns of inequity within their libraries and take a strategic approach to eliminating those inequities. All attendees will also receive a DEI toolkit designed to continue building capacity to become equity-minded and institute anti-racist policies, practices, programs, and services. Additional topics that will be addressed include LGBTQIA+ Allyship, cultural competence, and crucial conversations. This session will be recorded and available for a limited time after the live presentation. 

Thanks to generous donations from ACRL, ISLA, LLAMA, PLF & Information Technology ILA subdivisions, this workshop will be free regardless of a registrant's ILA membership status. Non-members are encouraged to show support for this and future continuing education opportunities by joining ILA.
