There's been a lot of difficult and performative discussions regarding equity, diversity, and inclusion in the library profession. In your institutions, have you or your colleagues intentionally applied equity, diversity, and inclusion values in practice and in behavior? What does it look like? What has worked or not worked? During this e-forum session, facilitators will prompt a series of questions to explore opportunities to foster EDI values in the workplace. This may include recognizing the issues of burnout and lack of wellness support in promoting EDI as well as successful collaborations and programs.
If you have question, need assistance, or would like to propose an e-Forum topic, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Library workers who attend will:
- 1. Identify opportunities to build collaboration to support EDI
- 2. Recognize why and how EDI values are important to libraries and community members
- 3. Acknowledge the burnout on promoting EDI in libraries
