Talent Untapped: BAME Academic Librarians' KnowledgeX


University of East London (UEL) Libraries will host Talent Untapped: BAME Academic Librarians' KnowledgeX. This will be a safe space for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) library and information professionals to exchange information about careers and key issues in the academic library and information sector, as well as network to develop sustainable support systems.

We have a number of expressions of interest, but we are seeking further interest in presenting and/or leading practical workshops on the following topics:  

Innovations in information and digital literacy

Emerging careers and existing careers in the profession

Career management and progression (i.e. tips on developing profiles, writing CVs and applications, interviewing, CPD)

Becoming a researcher or writing for academic publications

Mentoring, coaching or sponsorship

Any other ideas of interest to BAME communities

This is a safe space in which to develop skills in presenting, facilitating workshops, or supporting an event.  Support will be provided for first time presenters. 

Please provide a paragraph describing your presentation or workshop to by 1 September 2019.  Indicative timings for presentations and workshops are 30 to 40 minutes and lightning talks are anticipated to be around 10 minutes. 

There will also be an opportunity to visit the UEL library at Stratford. 

Admission is free and bookings will commence in early September with programme confirmation.

This event is sponsored by CB Resourcing, CILIP BAME network, M25 Consortium of academic libraries, SCONUL, and UEL BAME network.
