MASL Summer Professional Development Workshops

Diversity: Creating an Inclusive Environment in the School Library


Please join us for one of MASL’s summer professional development workshops, Diversity: Creating an Inclusive Environment in the School Library, which will center on creating an inclusive environment in your school library by focusing on topics in literature and learning such as race, gender, religion, orientation, culture, and abilities. The workshop will also cover the awareness of concepts such as implicit bias, microaggression, and stereotypes. Participants will learn through interactive activities and discussions and receive tools and tips on how to better diversify their collections.
