Supporting Neurodiverse and Atypical Leadership in Libraries

eLearning
Webinar
Atypical managers share their strategies for success, tools for immediate action, and techniques for self-acceptance.

Introvert, ADHD, neuroatypical, oh my! The percentage of the population identifying as neurodiverse or atypical is rising. This may describe you, someone you work work with, or someone you’re looking to hire. When considering diversity and inclusion in your library, we need to be willing to challenge leadership stereotypes and advocate for neurodiverse or atypical managers. In this webinar, atypical managers from various public library departments will share their experiences to help you learn strategies for success, gain tools for immediate action, and techniques for self-acceptance. It’s time to stop hiding these perceived weaknesses and unleash their superpowers!
