Sharing best practices for cultural competency: Call for Participation

  • 1.  Sharing best practices for cultural competency: Call for Participation

    Posted Mar 23, 2017 09:02 PM

    The American Library Association’s Diversity Member Initiated Group (MIG) invites you to participate in an ongoing discussion in ALA Connect and a facilitated discussion at ALA Annual Conference. We’re looking to collectively build an online library of conference and online presentations, trainings, and articles touching on institutional best practices around developing cultural competency in the next few months.  We’ll then review materials and discuss what ALA can do to foster best practices for cultural competency at our Annual Conference discussion on Sunday afternoon.  Join the conversation now in the MIG at http://connect.ala.org/node/229994 and add resources to the pinned post.  Please consider sharing this call for participation with your networks.

    The mission of the Diversity Membership Initiative Group is

    • To provide a space for success stories and best practices and broadly highlight examples of activities that have improved services and fostered organizational change.

    • To provide a community of practice for members to discuss ideas, concepts, and methods to positively impact library services to increasingly diverse populations.

    • To provide a base for deepening our discussion and collective understanding of diversity and inclusion issues across our professional organizations.

    All are welcome to join the MIG!
