Anika Johnson & Deb Sica will co-present a free pre-conference (max. attendees 125) that create a shift
of thinking from “diversity” as concept to equity, diversity and inclusion as an active process impacting
our daily lives. World Trust has developed the next evolution in diversity training 2.0. The content will be
based on the film Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity. Attendees will have a highly
informative film experience, broken into segments that will include personalized and community
activities. This workshop uncovers techniques for compassion building, understanding of the importance
of intersectionality when addressing institutionalized discrimination and will teach techniques to
challenge inequality and build equity within library and literacy services.
