Date: Thursday, July 13, 2023
Time: 10:15am – 11:15 am
Location: 21 S. Elting Corners Rd. Highland, NY
Convener: Morgan Strand & Tracy Dunstan, Nyack Library
For the first time, this group will meet in person! We look forward to a face-to-face conversation so we can connect and take time to be together as we discuss how to promote diversity in our workplaces. We hope you are able to take the time to come join us.
As library workers, it is no longer enough to say that we are inclusive or tolerant; we need to take action to be anti-racist and to do work to dismantle systems that perpetuate the status quo. Our plans are for this group to meet regularly as a place for us to share ideas of how we can be better allies, co-workers, and humans.
The intended audience for this meeting is library workers in the Southeastern NY Library Resources Council service area. (The eight-county area of Columbia, Greene, Ulster, Dutchess, Orange, Sullivan, Putnam and Rockland, NY.) All in this region are considered members or affiliate members. If you are from outside this region, you are welcome to join us. We appreciate the perspective that you might bring to our region, and hope that you understand that our conversation’s focus may be on the Hudson Valley as we think globally and act locally.
