One oft-overlooked aspect of making and makerspaces is its potential for empowerment, especially among populations that are otherwise marginalized or underrepresented. This 90 minute webinar will discuss why making is important for these populations, and what libraries can do to ensure their makerspaces are safe spaces of diversity, inclusion, and accessibility. Register here, courses are listed by date. The presenters will each speak from their respective institutional contexts, but they will also provide specific tips and actions librarians can take, regardless of institutional type or budget. The presentation will address issues of accessibility in the sense of eliminating barriers for those with disabilities, and will address inclusion in terms of physical ability, neurodiversity, age, race and ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, and community status (i.e. student, faculty, etc.).
