Girls in tech as a gateway to diversifying the library workforce

A session at LITA Forum

Saturday 14th November, 2015

2:15pm to 3:00pm (CST)

ncreasing the diversity of our library workforce is paramount to ensuring the best future for our profession and those we serve. To do so, we first need a diverse candidate pool. Attracting people who may not otherwise consider librarianship is the key. To that end, our library has been exploring opportunities to encourage underrepresented populations to engage with technology while at the same exposing them to careers in library science. Come hear about the development and outcomes of our library-hosted, 5-day, affordable, high quality technology day camp for a diverse cohort of young women
