Are you a new librarian facing leadership challenges? Do you identify as a woman? Are you wondering how you can lead with no official authority? Most library workers across the U.S. are women, yet women librarians still face structural and institutional barriers to leading. Join a discussion about women librarians and the obstacles they face while learning how to be a leader. Learn from other early-career, women librarians who have been working to build their leadership capacity. We invite women from a variety of contexts, backgrounds, and identities to take part in this conversation.
