As part of the Wyoming Library Association EDI (Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) Committee’s ongoing efforts, they’ll highlight interesting programs, webinars, workshops, and more that support WLA’s EDI Statement.
The hope is to share ideas of how to incorporate EDI into programs, see what other libraries are doing regarding EDI in libraries, and learn from each other.
- Teton County Library will offer two Zoom programs as part of their “Teton County at 100 years: 1921-2021” Centennial series:
- Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz will present “Indigenous Knowledge and the Land” on February 26 at 6:00 p.m.,
- Todd Wilkinson will present “Wildness From The Heart of the American Serengeti: How Are We Gonna Save This Place?” on March 4 at 6:00 p.m.
- Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Public Library webcast, February 25 at 12:00 p.m. Register to attend and/or receive a recording afterwards.
- Storytelling for Justice: How Libraries and Archives Hold History to Account recording is available for viewing at any time.
- The Wyoming State Library training calendar is compiled monthly by Thomas Ivie and Paige Bredenkamp. The calendar regularly includes free events in the EDI category.
If you have any upcoming programs that incorporate EDI ideas and principles, contact Conrrado Saldivar at CSaldivar@natronacountylibrary.org so he can add it to these occasional highlights. In this era of virtual programming, he would love to include any events happening in Wyoming.
