Join Our Racial Equity Consciousness Pilot
Calling all community-facing library staff! The NNLM All of Us Program Center (NAPC) is partnering with the Racial Equity Consciousness Institute (RECI) at the University of Pittsburgh to invite public library professionals to pilot an asynchronous training focused on educating public library staff to better understand the complexity of racism, and reflect on behaviors they can embody to catalyze antiracist initiatives, communities, and cultures.
We are seeking up to twelve (12) public library professionals to participate in the pilot to review developed learning modules, provide feedback, and share perspectives on the role of racial equity in your library’s community. We strongly encourage participation from rural and urban library professionals who directly serve diverse populations.
Estimated time commitment is approximately 15 hours spread over three months, from August to October 2023. This includes a mix of asynchronous activities and live Zoom sessions.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until all 12 openings are filled or by the end of July 24, 2023.
