IFLA’s Management of Library Associations Section (MLAS) in collaboration with the New Professionals Special Interest Group (NPSIG) is proud to announce a new webinar series to empower new library leaders worldwide and foster diversity within the profession.  

Over the course of 6 webinars, library associations from countries in each Regional Division will present opportunities they provide for new and senior librarians including leadership opportunities and how these library associations are fostering diversity within the library profession and leadership. The webinar format includes interactive opportunities to engage attendees in conversations about those topics that will elicit best practices and recommendations and the needs of new and senior professionals.  

The insights gained from these webinars will then inform and enrich the MLAS Open Session at WLIC 2022 in Dublin, which will focus on the same theme.  

We are pleased to feature library associations and librarians from all regions of the world in this webinar series: Asia-Oceania, Europe, Latin America & Caribbean (LAC), Middle East and North Africa (MENA), North America, and Sub-Saharan Africa.

 Our first webinar on March 24 features the North American region. Our second webinar on April 7 features the European region. Stay tuned for more news.
