Workshop Description

Practicing Anti-Racism, Equity and Inclusion within Academic Libraries: Creating more inclusive and equitable libraries

This interactive session will provide a space for participants to critically reflect on their understanding of anti-racism, equity and inclusion.  Participants will learn key terminologies to have conversations about these issues, and discuss the manifestation of racism and other inequities within the academic library context – at the direct, systemic and institutional levels.  For the second half of the session, working in small groups, participants will have an opportunity to work on case scenarios highlighting these issues.
