Fargo-Moorhead School Library Journal Diversity Workshop
January 24 @ 8:00 am - June 1 @ 5:00 pm$50
The editors of School Library Journal present a one-day workshop on Cultural Literacy and Diversity for Librarians. This immersive, interactive day of learning will focus on evaluation of books and media, collection development practices, readers’ advisory, and book marketing and promotion. Attendees will come away with an understanding of key concepts, such as white privilege, implicit bias, and intersectionality. Attendees will learn how to recognize offensive stereotypes, tropes, and microaggressions within media and how to assess for authenticity and appropriation. You will also learn how to perform a diversity audit and craft selection policies and guidelines that set benchmarks for diversity and inclusion.
