Being a parent or caregiver before coronavirus (COVID-19) dominated 2020 and was no easy undertaking, but the pandemic has illuminated some of the opportunities and challenges of these important roles within the workplace. This session will explore the perspectives of art information professionals who are parents & caregivers in Canada and the United States as they navigate work and life during this unprecedented crisis. It will also consider what lies ahead.

Topics discussed will include advocacy and support for work-life needs, family leave policies, and the closing of gaps in diversity, inclusion, and equity in the workplace. The audience for this discussion includes parents & caregivers, librarians, and library support staff, managers and directors, and other professionals.

This session will be recorded and made available through the conference platform for 30 days after the conference. It will not be considered for inclusion in the ARLIS/NA Humanities Commons
