Program Description

Event Details

Three-Session Course | May 8, May 15, & May 22, 2024 | 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Time Commitment: Approximately 9 hours

Antiracism and DEI 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 intermediate course will assume attendees come with foundational antiracism knowledge and are ready to think deeper and learn more about DEI theories and practices than they have in the past. You will learn tenets of antiracist theories and methodologies to inform and transform your external operations and your internal library culture. We will discuss topics partnerships and outreach practices, hiring and recruitment, strategies for meeting resistance, and more. This course will end with a ‘train the trainer’ session so that you can feel prepared to begin leading important conversations about antiracism in your library, regardless of your position.

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.
