Part of ALA President Molly Raphael’s “Empowering Diverse Voices” diversity leadership initiative, this free webinar will explore how diversity affects leadership in a new library work environment.
The Library Leadership 2.0 webinar will explore how people work in libraries today. With the integration of technology, team-based and project-based groupings, changing demographics, and a distributed model of work, a wider variety of expertise is needed throughout the library. The role of leader changes as the same person moves from a leadership capacity in one group, project or area, to a follower in one or more other areas. This new model of distributed or shared leadership demands a deeper understanding of organizational context, culture and climate and a fresh look at the intersection between leadership and diversity.
