For Immediate Release

Chicago -- Save the date and register now to participate in a unique and affordable LITA workshop.
Join other women and non-binary technology library workers in a safe and welcoming space to explore common challenges faced, learn strategies for dealing with them, and discuss specific tools to build your confidence at AvramCamp, LITA’s AdaCamp-inspired event.
This one-day LITA preconference, built on the unconference model, will start with looking at Imposter Syndrome, the feeling that you aren’t actually qualified for the work you are doing and will be discovered as a fraud. Participants will then have the opportunity to choose the topics most relevant to them for discussion, such as salary negotiation, how to advocate for accomplishments/invisible work, and ways to promote diversity and equity in tech environments.
Our goal is to create a support network and increase participation from underrepresented groups in open technology and culture to further the library community’s goals of ensuring equitable access to information for everyone.
