This workshop will help trustees and library directors understand how to incorporate EDI into policy development, strategic planning, funding initiatives, board development, and more. Anne will present a variety of interactive scenarios in which EDI issues are a factor, with time for Q&A and discussion.
This 60-minute workshop takes place on Tuesday, April 30, 2019. There is a morning session at 10:00am Eastern, or an afternoon session at 4:00pm for those who prefer a later time.
