In the 12 months leading up to ULA’s 2022 Annual Conference, the State Library is proud to partner with ULA and DSRT to present a year long curriculum on the conference theme “United in Diversity | Unidos en la Diversidad.” Each month will highlight a new focus area, with opportunities for Utah library professionals to learn, interact, and take action.

Once a month, a knowledgeable moderator will guide a Zoom meetup for ULA members on the current month's topic.

Did you discover any possible gaps in service? Did you encounter any issues while exploring your community's data? What details did you find? Did you find anything that surprised you? What ideas do you have about moving forward or improving services in your area? Heidi Fendrick, Utah State Library's State Data Coordinator, will facilitate this discussion.

All year long, ULA members are invited to participate in an open, ongoing discussion in the #edi channel in ULA's Slack workspace. Ask questions, share thoughts, and record your participation in the monthly Take Action challenge. Join the discussion.
