Mar 9, 2023, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
As libraries and cultural organizations develop initiatives that center diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice, what trends and forces within our broader society are expected to impact and shape our approach? How do we position ourselves strategically to offer services to our increasingly diverse communities?

Herbert Alexander, Chief Diversity Officer at Cayuga Health System, will explore trends and strategic approaches to JDEI with us, including three forces that must be taken into consideration--and their implications.
