Please join us for our Annual Spring Program on June 13, 2017 at the Devens Conference Center in Devens, MA.
Each spring, MLS offers a day-long program to give our members an opportunity to explore a topic in depth along with their peers. This year, we will focus on social justice, which is one of the themes in the 2017-2019 MLS strategic plan. Join us in June to:
- Hear a keynote address from April Hathcock, whose writings and presentations on diversity and inclusion in librarianship have garnered national attention;
- Discover what your colleagues in Massachusetts are doing to promote social justice at their libraries and in their communities at the spring program Idea Fair;
- Learn about how the Committee on the Promotion of Diversity & Inclusion at MIT Libraries has increased awareness among library staff and helped embed diversity and inclusion into library policies, practices, and events;
- Identify actions you can take to promote social justice at your own libraries, and work with other attendees to plan how we can continue the discussion at the statewide level.
