The New Members Round Table (NMRT) President's Program will explore authenticity in the library profession. This preconference workshop will examine the NMRT Presidential theme "You Belong Here" by considering how the library profession can create more inclusive environments that address imposter syndrome and encourage individuals to bring their whole selves to their work. As a discussion-based workshop, we will examine the tension between self-expression and externally defined ideas of "professionalism" in the library workplace.
