TRLN will host a workshop on cultural humility that is open to any who work in TRLN libraries. The workshop will be presented by Sunny Kim, Teen Services Librarian at The Seattle Public Library, and Nicky Andrews, NCSU Libraries Fellow at North Carolina State University.

The workshop will be offered in two separate sessions, capped at 60 participants each, on Wednesday, April 24, at the Archie K. Davis Conference Center in Research Triangle Park.

Workshop overview:
This interactive workshop will introduce participants to cultural humility, clarify how it is different from cultural competence, and demonstrate why it is an essential framework for resisting racism and bias in library work. Participants will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the cultural humility framework
  • Name and reflect on their own privilege and identities
  • Get practice in interrupting scenarios of bias and problematic behavior
  • Receive resources and recommendations for continuing to engage in cultivating cultural humility
