Diversity and Social Justice: A Starting Place Webinar

Diversity and Social Justice: A Starting Place Webinar
Wednesday, June 19th 11am-12pm, 4D11 (Ellis Library)

Unlike other online diversity trainings, this course introduces the concepts that you can utilize in your own life immediately. Regardless of each your identities and lived experiences, the concept of how we coexist, interact, and impact one another is imperative to build better teams, better connections, and deeper relationships.

Spend an hour, reflecting on how you fit into the conversation of diversity. Coming to terms with our own unique positive and negative bias as well as how that intersects with our responsibility of perception and sense of entitlement to validation is the foundation of social justice work. Our experiences, choices, and impact, both intentional and unintentional, matter. This is the starting place.

This webinar is a part of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Nine Conversations that Matter to Health Sciences Librarians with Jessica Pettitt series from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, which runs through 2020.
