Begin With One Step: How to Start Talking About DEI at Your Library (LibraryWorks Webinar) Online

The Massachusetts Library System is pleased to announce that we are working with LibraryWorks to provide our members with access to their webinars.  These webinars are free to Massachusetts library workers who register through our calendar. 

The words Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (and Justice and Belonging) are hard but necessary issues to address globally, nationally, and locally.

It is not easy to acknowledge different views, cultures, and lifestyles.

It is not easy to hear about casual or systemic inequities of the past and present.

It is not easy to make sure everyone who should have a place in the conversation is in the room when having the conversation.

However, diversity, equity, and inclusion are vital to creating a welcoming atmosphere for your customers and staff.

This one-hour class will introduce you to techniques and resources to help start the conversation around DEI in your library.

Maurice Coleman [he/him/his] is the Principal of Coleman & Associates. As a trainer, coach, and keynote speaker, Maurice helps organizations improve their human processes and use of technology, expand their internal/external communications, and broaden their focus and implementation of EDI activities. Since 2008, he has hosted and produced the long-running (and oldest) training/education and empowerment podcast T is for Training.
