Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Contemporary diversity ‚"training‚" often addresses prejudicial mindsets, unconscious bias, and ‚"whiteness‚" as a normative frame. While these experiences are valuable, few focus on the history of race in the US and the impact of policies and norms on racialized (and other) populations. This panel explores strategies for bringing this transformative content to library organizations through a training program called the Racial Equity Institute.
