President's Address & Keynote: Centering Diversity through Individual Awareness, Action and Advocacy
Feedback form is now closed.
Librarianship is becoming more diverse, and so are the communities libraries serve. The call to center diversity is not a new one, though the call and heeding it is needed now more than ever before. So, how do you answer the call? What does centering diversity mean? Before centering diversity, how do you define it? How can it be manifested and embedded into your everyday work life? What are your responsibilities to move from awareness to action and advocacy? What are the best practices? In this keynote, Twanna will answer these questions and share her experiences.

Thanks to Utah State Library for the Uplift Grant that made this session possible!
