Description: 

Information professionals, especially librarians, find themselves in increasingly diverse workplaces, often without adequate preparation through formal schooling. iDiversity, the University of Maryland iSchool’s student group dedicated to diversity, inclusivity, and accessibility, hopes to change this by providing instructors the resources they need to embed diversity issues into every course they teach. We will show our website of talking points and suggested readings and demonstrate that iDiversity has created a rich and easy-to-use resource that can be utilized by anyone wishing to gain a deeper understanding of how social justice topics are relevant to the work they do every single day.
