OnLibChat: Holding Space

Date & Time

Monday, November 23, 2020 from 12pm – 1pm EST


We invite all BIPOC library workers to attend this BIPOC-only conversation to share our experiences navigating these spaces, to reflect, and, echoing Lydia XZ Brown, “to hold space for each other”. 

This BIPOC-only session will be facilitated by Oy Lein Jace Harrison (Ryerson University | Federation of Black Canadians) & Abeer Siddiqui (McMaster University). This session precedes another open discussion for all library workers interested in learning more about effective allyship.

How to Join
