I'm passing this along for those that may be interested in participating and that meet the criteria, please see below:

Are you a library worker who wants to learn more and talk about race and librarianship, and who oversees others' work (including volunteers or students)? Join a six-week FREE online course, "Antiracism and Libraries," based on Ibram X. Kendi's recent book How to be an Antiracist.

The course focuses on discussion around the book and scenarios set in the day to day work of libraries, and is open to library employees who have supervisory responsibilities in the Pacific Northwest. People from any type of library with any level of familiarity around the topic are welcome! Enrollment is limited to 60 people total (three concurrent classes of no more than 20).

To participate, please send to Samantha Hines Samantha.hines at email.myunion.edu<mailto:Samantha.hines at email.myunion.edu>) the following:

*         a 500 word or less statement of interest

*         Your name and contact info (email and phone)

*         A brief description of your supervisory responsibilities including where you work and how long you've been in the role

*         Why you're interested in taking the course

Applications are due by October 16! The course will begin on November 1, 2020.

Please send any questions to Samantha.hines at email.myunion.edu<mailto:Samantha.hines at email.myunion.edu>, and thanks!
