Equity, diversity, and inclusion may seem like abstract goals that are difficult to implement in your day-to-day advisory work, but with knowledge, effort, and intentionality, anyone can learn to apply an equity mindset to their reading and recommending.
In this webinar, Laurel Johnson and Allyson Coan give you strategies and practical applications to incorporate principles of inclusion into your advisory services. We talk about inclusion and why it’s important in readers’ advisory, diversity audits and how to use them for advisory work, strategies for bringing authors from marginalized communities into focus, and how to call-in your coworkers. This webinar gives participants a better understanding of how to actively prioritize inclusion in advisory work, instead of falling back on established practices of leaving behind underrepresented authors and narratives.
