Feedback form is now closed.
This discussion group is for people of color in libraries to connect across library types and locations.  
The most recent available data shows that 88% of credentialed librarians are white. Because librarians of color make up only 12% of the profession, they may be the only person of their ethnic and/or racial background in their department, unit, or entire organization. This discussion group is an opportunity to for library workers of color to meet, build community, and empower each other. The discussion will begin with the presenter sharing details about Southern Nevada's first POC in LIS Gathering and answering any questions about the event. The rest of the topics to be discussed will be determined by the interests and needs of the participants. Potential discussion topics include: networking, mentorship, diversity committees, microaggressions, etc.
