Together with the ISLA, LLAMA, PLF and IT subdivisions of the Iowa Library Association, ILA/ACRL is sponsoring a special workshop from ILA's Committee for Diversity and Inclusion.

Wednesday, January 13th, 10:00 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.

This workshop is free, but registration is required. Non-ILA members may attend, and are encouraged to join the association!
