PLA Plans Webinars on Cultural Intelligence in Libraries

The Public Library Association (PLA) is hosting a webinar series for library professionals on cultural intelligence (CQ). CQ is “a person’s ability to function effectively across the boundaries that divide nations, ethnic groups and organizations,” according to PLA.

Led by Marla Ehlers, assistant director of the Grand Rapids Public Library in Michigan, the series consists of two parts: The first will focus on building CQ skills (i.e., core concepts and competencies), and the second will focus on applying them to library work (and how they can inform policies, services, and programs).

The first webinar, Building CQ: Fostering Our Cultural Intelligence, will be held April 4, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. EDT.

The second webinar, Applying CQ: Shaping Culturally Intelligent Libraries, will be held April 11, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. EDT.

For more information and the pricing structure, read the press release.
