Program Description

Event Details


Wednesdays, May 10, 17, and 24, from 11:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. PST

Take the next step in your antiracism journey and learn even more you can do to transform your library or classroom culture.

Antiracism and EDI work - both personal and professional - are not destinations; they are ongoing, lifelong journeys, and librarians and educators are often at very different places in those journeys. This advanced course will assume attendees come with foundational antiracism knowledge and are ready to think deeper and learn more about EDI theories and practices than they have in the past. You will learn tenets of race theories, Black feminist thought, and antiracist methodologies to inform and transform your programs, policies, and curricula. 

You’ll complete assignments over 3+ weeks in an interactive online classroom environment with personal coaching from an expert in the field. In addition, you’ll have access to our foundational bonus content—rich supporting materials you can explore at your own pace, including a series of webinars from Library Journal and School Library Journal contributors, readings, activities, and videos.

The transformational speaker program has given thousands of librarians the tools and vision for meaningful change. The live sessions run on Wednesdays, May 10, 17, and 24, from 11:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. PST (recordings available) with an ongoing facilitator-led workshop over 3 weeks. Don’t miss this opportunity!
