The Academic Library Division of the Georgia Library Association in collaboration with the Georgia Library Associations’ Black Caucus (GLA-BC) would like to invite you to a free ACRL webinar viewing party.
Overcoming Biases and Microaggressions in the Workplace.
Description: As human beings, we cannot hide from bias: It is a natural part of our brain. However, it is up to us to recognize how biases in the workplace impact others and our own productivity. This webcast will help attendees identify biases, explore how they affect the work environment, and discuss strategies for reducing these biases within recruitment, hiring, and retention in the library workplace. We will define the various types of microaggressions that can result from these biases and offer practices for addressing and coping with them. Minimizing and addressing implicit bias and microaggressions can help foster a safe and inclusive work environment.
The viewing parties will be held at five different locations across the state on two different dates. Many locations will host discussions and additional programs after the viewings.
