NYLA, SCRLC & You: A conversation about diversity and inclusion in librarianship
Jun 5, 2019, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Audience: Library staff from all types of libraries and SCRLC member institutions are invited to attend. This meetup will be held in conjunction with the SCRLC Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Advisory Committee.
Description: Join New York Library Association President Michelle Young (Director of Libraries and Associate Professor at Clarkson University) and NYLA Executive Director, Jeremy Johannesen at SCRLC for a conversation on improving diversity and inclusion in librarianship. As a presidential initiative, Michelle has partnered with the Empire State Library Network to host a series of gatherings across the state to bring together librarians and library workers from across all types of institutions to share innovative ideas, explore and identify collaborative opportunities, and to further the discussion of improving diversity and inclusion in librarianship.
