Diversity & Inclusion Unconference Session

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Participants will discuss issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion as they relate to all types of libraries in an open space for brainstorming, collaborating, and inspiration. The session will begin with attendees establishing discussion ground rules and then attendees will divide into small groups for flexible conversations focusing on their interests. Come prepared to participate and share! The small groups will each have a general theme or topic to help get the conversation started. From there, the conversation will flow wherever participants take it. Partway through the session, attendees may choose to join a different table/topic of interest to them; however, if they are deep in conversation, they may choose to stay at their original table. If time allows, a representative from each table will be asked to share out some important takeaways with the large group. This session is focused on providing a safe space for purposeful and relevant discussion relating to diversity, equity, and inclusion in libraries and the communities we serve.
