Jen Brown at ACRL 2019

April 11, 2019

Held in Cleveland, Ohio, the ACRL (Association of College and Research Libraries) 2019 Conference centers around the theme of "Recasting the Narrative". As part of the four day long conference, Jen Brown will speak at a panel session titled "Moving Beyond Race 101: Speculative Futuring for Equity", where panelists and attendees will envision a speculative future for libraries that is inclusive and equity-based. Objectives for the session include imagining new ways to address racial inequity in academic librarianship through empathy building exercises, developing the language to investigate the impact of white supremacy on profession recruitment and retention, and constructing a new understanding of how effective mentorship helps underrepresented librarians overcome systemic barriers.

We wish her the best of luck!
