Expanding Our Approach to EDISJ (Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, Social Justice)

May 26, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Learn how to use Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) combined with a justice, equity and inclusion lens to help libraries reflect and embrace diversity.  The panel will discuss the difference between cultural competence and cultural humility; who libraries are missing with their services, outreach, and management structure; and what pragmatic tools might be used to fill these gaps.  Part two of this workshop will be presented by the Vermont Department of Libraries at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, June 9.  Panel members are Jonathan Clark, Lara Keenan, Mariah Lawrence, Bridget Stone, and Joy Worland.  This presentation is open to all, VLA membership not required.  Handouts are available online here:
