Welcome to the 2017 MLA Annual Conference! This year’s theme is Radical Librarianship - the power of libraries to provide access to the truth, strengthen our community voices, create opportunity for exploration and innovation, and assist our patrons to build a better future. Libraries have always been radical, but what does Radical Librarianship mean for us today? Join us at the 2017 MLA Annual Conference to help shape that conversation!
Thursday, October 5 • 11:35am - 1:00pm
Lunch & Keynote with Alicia Sojourner, YWCA Minneapolis: Intentional Inclusion: Do Not be the Monkey!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The everyday world is full of verbal, visual and environmental messages that tell us that we either belong and meet understood societal norms or we simply do not. Creating an intentionally inclusive environment means that we need to be aware of the messages, recognize when we are giving, receiving and witnessing them and learn some steps to eliminate those practices. These are thoughts and skills that, when learned and practiced, will become second nature.
