New Course Offering! Transparency in Library Communication

Transparency in communication is critical at all levels. It is necessary for an equitable and inclusive workplace as well as for library stakeholders to understand changes as they occur. Without it, leaders lack the context needed to understand the decisions they must make, and workers have difficulty with trust and buy-in. Effective transparency takes time and practice as it is challenging to share information that is timely, complete, and helpful.
