  • 1.  NISO DEIA training course

    Posted Tue August 17, 2021 01:57 PM
    Hi everyone, I'm excited to say that we are introducing a NISO's new online training series, intended to help staff at small- to medium-size organizations who have been tasked with planning a DEIA program or initiative. Organizational Planning for DEIA: A 100 Level Course is an eight-week course, with weekly classes at 11.30am-1.00pm ET (Canada/US) from September 17 to November 5. The goal is to help you organize your thinking by addressing questions such as: What needs to be considered? What will help lower the barriers to inclusion? Who needs to be involved? How will you measure progress? Course moderator Dr. Antonia Olivas (she/her/hers) is the Engagement and Inclusion Librarian at California State University San Marcos (the traditional territory and homelands of the Luiseño/Payómkawichum people).

    If you're interested, you can find more information on our website and the early bird discount is available through September 10 (there's an additional discount for NISO members). Happy to answer any questions you may have :)
