The IDEA (Inclusion Diversity and Equity in Action) Team is looking for Wisconsin library staff from all backgrounds and areas of library work to serve on an advisory committee for Winter 2022 - Spring 2023. Applications are due October 30, 2022. The purpose of the IDEA Team is to facilitate and organize statewide learning on topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) for Wisconsin public library workers, with a focus on race and racial equity. Last year the IDEA Team organized the LSTA-funded, statewide learning project WI Libraries Talk About Race.
This advisory committee is an opportunity to:
- Offer your voice and perspective on racial equity, and how Wisconsin library workers can take action in the context of learning.
- Learn more about how continuing education is provided to public libraries statewide in Wisconsin.
- Learn what the possibilities are within projects that are funded by LSTA.
- Connect with colleagues across the state who are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Mark Jochem (firstname.lastname@example.org).
