Webinar: Starting from Where You Are – Becoming Anti-Isms
December 6, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am EST
Steps towards becoming anti-racist include developing an awareness of your own culture, cultivating cultural humility, and recognizing that it is a never-ending process that is not a straight line. This interactive session will have participants thinking about their own cultural backgrounds and the cultures of the community members our libraries serve. Resources for continuing this journey towards being anti-racist and anti-isms will be provided.
Additional Information: This webinar will use interactive components to allow participants to apply what they are learning to their own situations.
Learning Objectives: After this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Engage in self-growth activities that help build an environment of acceptance and belonging.
- Be involved in discussions about diversity, equity, and inclusion and their impact on belonging.
- Take meaningful steps to eliminate the -isms around them.
