Not Just Another Commitee: How academic library employees advance diversity, equity, and inclusions initiatives at their institutions




Join SWON and ALAO on June 5th for a webinar with Ohio academic library workers from a variety of institutions who will share their insights about establishing, leading, and serving on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) committees. Topics will include taking the lead on DEI-focused policies, programming, communication, training, and more. Presenters will provide a helpful framework for others that are maybe just getting started, or want to re-energize their work in DEI.
