Leading at All Levels

Leadership does not have a one-size fits all definition. It is instead demonstrated by actions and is present in all facets of an organization’s life, regardless of a librarian’s position title or location on an organizational chart. The goal of this session is to strengthen leadership awareness and skills. A diverse panel of peers will share in leadership experiences and learnings, good and bad.
