Supporting the Diversity Spectrum in Your Community: Programming, Policy & Resources


Building off the well-established concept of inclusion practices for public institutions, we will collectively work to open the margins around ethnic, religious and gender diversity to areas like ability and sexuality through the framework of “everyday diversity.” The power of “everyday diversity” is that it allows marginalized populations to see themselves reflected in common experiences, where difference is integral to the inherent strength of our communities. This workshop will have a “hands-on” discussion of specific books that demonstrate everyday diversity while also offering approaches for how to incorporate this worldview into local collection development
