Creating diverse and welcoming spaces at our Libraries mean that our staff need to be aware of themselves and customers. Over the last 2 years Halifax Public Libraries have embarked on a program of learning and development for all staff that includes education in library services as well as creating an understanding of the people in the communities we serve. Using a variety of learning opportunities and methods, staff can explore a variety of topics, to increase their abilities and create diverse and welcoming spaces within the library and our communities.

In this session, we will:

- Discuss the steps we have taken to create a diverse learning program for staff.
- Share how we are consciously raising awareness, by creating learning opportunities for staff, and the accountability measures we use.
- Examine our delivery system which allows staff to learn at their own pace and time.
- Discuss ideas for helping people to learn and share in our diverse communities.
- Share ideas for creating learning within our staff and communities.
