Mindful Leadership: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Academic Library
Information Literacy Program

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are not just politically correct buzzwords; they are complex ideas that should be addressed by leaders of instruction programs. Mindful leadership involves the thoughtful reflection about and integration of practices that support DEI in our work as instructional librarians. This webinar offers a panel discussion and question- and-answer session examining DEI through the lens of management and leadership featuring four well-known specialists: Toni Anaya and Charlene Maxey-Harris of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, authors of the ARL Diversity and Inclusion SPEC kits 2010 & 2017; Anastasia “Stacy” Collins of Simmons University, author of Language, Power, and Oppression in the LIS Diversity Void; and Ione Damasco of the University of Dayton and co-author of “Tenure and Promotion Experiences of Academic Librarians of Color.”
