As law libraries continue to develop programs and initiatives relating to equity, diversity, and inclusion, the LLNE & SNELLA Fall 2020 conference will focus on manifestations of bias within law libraries and the role of libraries in dismantling that bias. Sessions will increase participants' knowledge of bias, deepen their understanding of different forms of bias, and identify biases within law libraries and collections. Being an election year as well as the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, the conference will also examine biases and barriers to voting, as well as libraries' role in overcoming those barriers.
Participants of the virtual conference will come away with an increased ability to:
