Inclusive Conversations

Due to COVID, we are pushing back the start of the Inclusive Conversations program to allow for more participation.

Reflecting our commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion, we’re leveraging a grant from the American Library Association’s Libraries Transforming Communities Facilitation Skills for Small & Rural Libraries, SALS is pleased to announce that we will be holding a series of workshops about convening, hosting, and facilitating Inclusive Conversations in your communities.

The series of four workshops will cover understanding who we are and the identities we hold, creating an inclusive culture, becoming anti-racist, and the role of public libraries in deliberative democracy. By the end of the series, participants will be comfortable convening, hosting, and leading inclusive conversations in our communities.


Participants will be required to do the following:


  • Secure the approval of Board/Director
  • Complete the ALA’s Facilitation Training
  • Attend all sessions from 10 am-Noon on the following Fridays:
    • February 18
    • March 4
    • March 18
    • April 1

Host at least one conversation in your community before May 30, 2022
