Serving the at-risk population is an important part of our jobs that often gets overlooked in conversation, so we have a lot to learn from our team of expert panelists. Please attend this event and hear some fascinating points of view of people who work regularly with the at-risk or incarcerated youth population.

iDiversity founder Rebecca Oxley made five minutes for diversity in the Uncommons at this year’s ALA in Chicago at the first ever “Bend The Rails” Ignite Invitational on library innovation and future. She addressed the question of what diversity in library and information sciences is all about by unpacking concepts and attitudes, and sent out a call to action to redefine our perceptions. Rebecca is a teacher-librarian in Prince George’s County Public Schools in Maryland and tweets from @LibrariansFTW.
