Libraries and archives are known as repositories of knowledge, objects, curiosities, and resources. They are also spaces for learning, growth, and exchange. To lead committees, task forces, or groups– especially in a time of massive social disruptions–librarians, archivists, and arts information workers must embrace their roles as community builders and vital curators of conversation. In professional settings, leaders can better build community by growing opportunities for shared learning, encouraging democratic approaches towards collaboration, and championing online gathering creativity.

For the 2021 Leadership Institute, we will be joined by Dr. Jennifer Wolowic, a visual anthropologist and Project Manager of the Simon Fraser University Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue’s Strengthening Canadian Democracy Initiative. Dr. Wolowic will share principles, tips, and case studies to inspire the growth of networks and leadership across ARLIS/NA.

The session will include a blend of presentation, reflection, and networking breakout conversations. The session will cover dialogue techniques for better meetings, principles of democratic engagement that apply to any organizing endeavour, and examples of innovative online events that build community.

ABOUT THE SIMON FRASER UNIVERSITY MORRIS J. WOSK CENTRE FOR DIALOGUE

Since 2000, the SFU Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue has focused on democracy. The centre creates real world impact for society’s most pressing challenges by using dialogue and engagement to co-create solutions, exchange knowledge, support community-engaged learning, and build the capacity of others. Our staff, fellows, and associates are leaders in a diversity of fields. These include dialogue, participatory democracy, climate solutions, diversity and inclusion, public engagement, deliberative democracy, international security, systems change, decolonization, urban design and sustainable community development.
