A core library value is inclusion, but how well do we live this value in our workplace? From recruitment practices to workplace culture, this session will reflect on how well we support inclusion and act as allies to people at risk from being excluded from our workplaces. This interactive discussion will look at the barriers to entry for the profession, how libraries can create inclusive workplaces, and how our community-led practices can be enriched when libraries cultivate an inclusion mindset as part of their organizational culture. Participants in this workshop will share their challenges and best practices, and co-create a library inclusion toolkit that they can take back to their own organizations.
