PDA Event: Intentionally Recruiting for Diversity in Librarianship
From Nicole Swanson
The Diverse Librarianship Career Training and Education Program 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. Through collaboration and innovation, libraries can ensure their espoused DEIA values are values in action.
Presenters include: Tammie Busch, Lora Del Rio, Shelly McDavid, Lamonta Swarm, and Simone Williams, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
