How Cultural Intelligence Makes a Difference in the Information Profession: Are You Culturally Competent
As librarians, providing equitable access to all patrons should be a top priority. The patrons visiting our libraries should reflect the diversity of the communities we live in. Unfortunately, there are many populations that go underserved. How can we broaden our reach to better serve all our community?
Join us on Thursday, February 28 for an Amigos Library Services online conference, Open Doors: Reaching Underserved Populations, where we will explore methods and best practices for reaching an important part of your community.
Kicking off our conference is keynote speaker, Dr. Michele A. L. Villagran, assistant professor with San Jose State University School of Information and founder of CulturalCo. Her keynote will explore how cultural intelligence makes a difference in the information profession and asks the question, “are you culturally competent?” Throughout the rest of the day, a variety of peers and experts will present on a diverse range of topics, with each time slot offering three different programming options.
Presenter: Dr. Michelle A. L. Villagran
