Are you confused about all the topics under the umbrella of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion?
Are you overwhelmed by all things swirling around in our world today?
Are you ready to have less frustrating conversations?
Please join us for the “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Nine Conversations that Matter to Health Sciences Librarians with Jessica Pettitt” webinar series which is provided through a collaboration of the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries (AAHSL), the Medical Library Association (MLA), and the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM).
Conversations that matter include both internal and external dialogues about our similarities and our differences. Each webinar session will showcase examples across various subordinated and marginalized intersectional identities as well as give us all time to reflect, organize, and do our own work in claiming responsibility for our privileges and full lived experiences. Please note, you do not have to be a health sciences librarian to attend as much of the information is applicable in many environments . All sessions are free. Attending the live sessions is encouraged but they will be recorded.

First session is June 19, “Diversity & Social Justice: A Starting Place”:
Unlike other online diversity training, 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.
