Path to Leadership: National Forum on Advancing Asian/Pacific Islander American Librarianship

The Chinese American Librarians Association, in partnership with the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association, hosted a two half-day online forum to support leadership development opportunities for the community of Asian American and Pacific Islander American (APIA) library workers. Due to COVID-19, this national forum was held virtually. The forum took place on zoom via two half days in January 2022.  

Funding provided forum participants at all levels to attend a reunion meeting event at the ALA Annual Conference 2022 in Washington D.C. This project produced a white paper documenting ideas for leadership development pipelines among APIA library workers and a curriculum outline for a leadership program specifically for APIA library workers.

Our white paper is now out! You can find the information session recording here, the slide deck, and the white paper here.
