Privilege Layer Cake Educational Event

November 12, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

CAL logo

Privileges with which we are born directly impact privileges which we earn.  Join Dr. Kawanna Bright and the CAL Leadership Institute (CALLI) Committee as we explore our privileges.

Dr. Bright spoke about this activity during the Power & Privilege at Play: Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity in the Library Virtual Conference in July 2020.  Joanna Nelson Rendon (CALLI chair) then led the activity with staff at the library, resulting in deepened connections among staff.  The activity is a new way to consider patron access to our libraries.

In this session, we will focus first on understanding our individual privileges, so please be ready to share and explore.  We will then start a conversation around the privileges that we assume patrons have to access libraries and the impact these assumptions have on library services.

When: November 12, 2020 from 1 – 2:30 PM

Cost: Free for CAL members, $10 for non-CAL members
