ALA: Statement of Appropriate Conduct: <
MLA: Statement of Appropriate Conduct at MLA Meetings <>

"providing a harassment-free environment for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, physical appearance, ethnicity, religion, or other group identity."

Topic 1: What do we see?
  • What steps are we taking to challenge our own preconceived notions?

Topic 2: What do we say? 
  • What can we actively do and say at conferences and in other professional settings to watch out for and support one another, to create a positive and welcoming environment for all? 

Topic 3: What can we do?
