Individual Presentation A:  Are You Ready for a Non-Binary Job Applicant and Co-Worker? Creating a Fabulous and Welcoming Workplace for Non-Binary Employees (Mark Bieraugel)
Are you ready to interview a non-binary job candidate? How do you introduce them, and make them feel welcome during the interview, and is your workplace and HR policies reflective of your institution's inclusivity goals? In this workshop, you'l learn about non-binary gender identities, learn and practice gender neutral pronouns, and develop workplace strategies for supporting non-binary people.  

Individual Presentation B:  Desiring SUVs: Masculinities, Masculine Overcompensation, and Gender Segregation in Academic Libraries (Matthew Weirick Johnson)

Masculinity threat will be explored primarily through theories on masculinities, vertical and horizontal gender segregation, organizations and organizational culture, and masculine overcompensation. This presentation seeks to examine masculinities and masculinity threat in the academic library and to provide suggestions for future research to conduct cross-disciplinary, empirical examinations of how masculinity threat occurs in academic libraries.

Individual Presentation C: Practicing intentionality in team and project work (Rachel Vacek, Heidi Burkhardt)
As part of our library's website redesign project, we are working to intentionally espouse and elevate principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in our work to ensure they inform and accompany all stages of a project, and to be a model for other projects. Learn how we're integrating these principles into team formation, project structure, communication and assessment plans, user research, and how this work impacts the library.
