Creating a Collaborative Culture [$] Preconference/Institute Las Vegas Convention Center
N256
Description :

Rewards or threats. Our brains look for them five times a second. That's the root of many difficult workplace situations. Come learn the transformative power of reframing failure, the true meaning of "yes and" and the kinds of listening that changes lives. In this session, we'll use applied improvisation to go from passive-aggressive to assertive, from blame to "I'm game." Instead of hearing, "It's not my job!", you'll start hearing, "How do we do it?"

Managing Challenges, Maximizing Impact: Policies and Practices for Controversial Programming Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N240
Description :

From religion to health care to immigration — controversial subjects can pose a unique challenge for librarians. How can we offer high-quality programs on these important, but potentially polarizing, topics while maintaining an environment conducive to civil dialogue? In this session, intellectual freedom advocates and experienced programming librarians will discuss how to prepare for and host events that may attract controversy, but also can increase visibility and foster community engagement.

Ignite Sunday Session: The Ally-brarian Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N239/241
Description :

How does a librarian assist an underserved population that they are not a part of? They become an ally. The “Ally-brarian” works to help those who would normally not “see themselves” in the library, either as a patron or professional, find a welcoming place. This session will outline how those who are part of a majority have the ability, and the responsibility, to use their capacity as librarians to advocate for those in the minority. It will also demonstrate how allies are crucial to promoting inclusivity in libraries, both in who they serve and who they employ.
