Annual Conference Session
ALA Unit/Subunit: HRDR, ODLOS
Meeting Type: Discussion Group
Cost: Included with full conference registration.
Cultivating a diverse workforce is of great importance, but representation of librarians of color in LIS education, research, and executive-level administration is lacking. Recruiting librarians and other information professionals of color is a social justice issue. A panel of current doctoral students will address various aspects of the PhD process including: networks of allies, safe spaces, and fit in a program. Join us for the annual Leaders Wanted: Doctoral Fair immediately following!
