Cultural Proficiencies for Racial Equity Webinar Series

Register now for ACRL’s four-part Cultural Proficiencies for Racial Equity: A Framework (CPRE Framework) webinar series. Starting April 3 and running each Wednesday through April 24, this interactive webinar series will explore the CPRE Framework and its practical applications in your library. Developed as a practical and theoretical guide for libraries, the CPRE Framework helps individuals, organizations, and institutions understand the nature of racism and its many manifestations.

Using the CPRE Framework as inspiration, the webinar series invites participants to think about tangible, actionable steps towards using the Framework in their organizations. Each week, an expert presenter will share methodologies for applying the information found in the CPRE Framework. Participants will then have opportunities to imagine the possibilities of their own efforts during collaborative breakout sessions.
