Participants will delve into a case study that highlights best practices for successful outreach and collaboration. Attendees will participate in peer group discussions involving possible answers to the question: “How can your institution prepare for proactive communications with tribal communities?”

    Description: "How to Manage a Diverse Staff" is a workshop that will focus on how to effectively and empathetically utilize a department's diverse composition to better serve the needs of a repository and its patrons. The central premise of this workshop is to learn how to a) identify and b) encourage all of the unique perspectives, life and work experiences of our staff in a professional and respectful manner.  Participants will be encouraged to share their own experiences with each other and develop practical ways to incorporate them into their working environment.

    A major goal of this workshop is to move the idea of diversity beyond the "checkbox" and create a safe space where everyone feels encouraged and empowered.
