  • Intentionally Recruiting for Diversity in Librarianship: Reflections on a Year Later

    Date: Tuesday, April 4, 2023
    Time: 11:00am - 12:30pm
    Location: Online - At Your Computer

    The Diverse Librarianship Career Training and Education Program, launched in 2021, is a call to action in response to the serious lack of diverse representation in library and information science professions. This grant project aims to create a pathway model for breaking down barriers in recruitment and retention of diverse librarians by introducing high school seniors to librarianship. With the program now in its second year, program staff return to reflect on what they have learned and to highlight the work that has been completed on the forthcoming toolkit.
