Humble Leadership as a Humble Practice

Presenter: Xan Goodman, Health Sciences Librarian, Associate Professor, University Libraries, University of Nevada Las Vegas

This 60-minute webinar will introduce the concept of humble leadership. Humble leadership is a leadership style developed by Dr. Edgar Schien, MIT Emeritus Professor of organizational psychology. This webinar will introduce the idea of humble leadership as a pathway to engage in leadership as a librarian. I will share my thoughts about humble leadership using a framework of cultural humility to situate humble leadership as a humble practice within a developing framework of cultural humility for librarianship.

Engaging Our Communities Through EDI Work: Our Perspectives

Wednesday, November 17 at 9 AM PDT

Zoom Link: https://sjsu.zoom.us/j/82868881853 

Presenters: Ray Pun & Patrice Green

This session will share how two librarians engage their communities through the values of equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI). As the field of librarianship continues to evolve, library workers have become more cognizant of what it means to share authority and knowledge inside and outside of their silos while working toward a more inclusive set of values. Recognizing librarianship as more than internal, transactional exchanges with limited audiences is essential to engaging in more reparative and meaningful work with community partners. From special collections to programming, both speakers will address the opportunities and challenges in integrating EDI into their respective activities.
