In this episode, we talk with librarians Nicole Rawlinson, Priya Charry & Leah Larson about the intricacies of navigating conversations around equity, diversity and inclusion in the workplace. The trio emphasizes the importance of holding space for these conversations, the challenges of doing so as marginalized individuals, and why libraries should be working on the retention, not just hiring, of BIPOC employees.
This discussion was inspired by a presentation led by these three at the 2022 Public Library Association conference entitled, “Facilitating EDI Conversations in Professional Settings and Public Programming.”
