ince 2012, Girls Who Code has taught computing skills to and inspired more than 10,000 girls across America – and they are just at the beginning of their mission to close the gender gap in tech. Reshma Saujani, the founder and CEO of the national nonprofit organization, is also the author of the groundbreaking book  Women Who Don’t Wait In Line,  in which she advocates for a new model of female leadership focused on embracing risk and failure, promoting mentorship and sponsorship, and boldly charting your own course. She will speak at the opening general session of the Annual Conference on Friday, June 23, 4:00 – 5:15 p.m.

Reshma Saujani Opening General Session Friday 6/23, 4:00 – 5:15 p.m.

Girls Who Code is growing fast, with a goal of reaching one million young women by 2020. 1.4 million jobs will be open in computing related fields in the U.S., of which we are only on pace to fill 29 percent with computing graduates, a mere 3 percent of whom are likely to be women. The organization has been featured in more than 100 publications and media outlets, from  The New York Times  to  “The Today Show,” and has more than 105,000 Twitter

followers. The forthcoming book Girls Who Code: Learn to Code and Change the World (August 2017, ages 10 and up), will show girls how coding skills are relevant to their lives and will get them excited about creating their own apps, games, and robots. With dynamic artwork, down-to-earth explanations of coding principles, and real-life stories of girls and women working at places like Pixar and NASA, it sets out to prove that coding is truly for everyone, no matter their interests. “The world is advancing in technology and women and girls need to educate ourselves on computer science to catch up.

A

remarkable story will be shared when Sandra Uwiringiyimana, originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo, appears as an Auditorium Speaker on Saturday, June 24 at the ALA Annual Conference. Uwiringiyimana was just 10 years old when she found herself with a gun pointed at her head. She had watched as rebels gunned down her mother and six-year-old sister in a refugee camp. Remarkably, the rebel didn’t pull the trigger and she escaped. She tells her story in the memoir How Dare the Sun Rise: Memoirs of a War Child, and will talk with attendees about her survival, about finding her place in a new country, her hope for the future, and how she found a way to give voice to her people. Since her family’s resettlement to the United States in 2007 through a United Nations refugee program, Uwiringiyimana has fought hard to raise awareness and calls for justice for the Gatumba massacre and other human rights abuses in the region. She is passionate about girls’

r. Brené Brown has spent the past 15 years studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy and is the author of three #1 New York Times bestsellers – The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, and Rising Strong. With over 25 million views, her TED talk, “The Power of Vulnerability,” is one of the top five most viewed TED talks in the world.

She is a thought-leader, researcher, and storyteller with the rare ability to both inspire audiences and leave them with actionable change strategies. As she says, “you either walk inside your story and own it, or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worthiness.” Brown is the Founder and CEO of both COURAGEworks – an online learning platform that offers classes for individuals and families on braver living and loving, and BRAVE LEADERS INC – an organization dedicated to providing couragebuilding programs for leaders at every level of an organization. In 2016, the Huffington Foundation endowed a new chair at The University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work to honor the research professor. The Huffington Foundation Endowed Chair provides annual resources for Brown’s research to attract world-class students pursuing training in Grounded Theory methodology and increase the impact of her work as more students are trained in her research on vulnerability, shame, courage and empathy.

Engage Your Community with Everyday Democracy and Other Dialogue and Deliberation Models

A

s urban areas face challenges such as shifting demographics, joblessness and crisis in public education, policing and infrastructure, public libraries have the opportunity to bring disparate voices together and lead change. At a one-day workshop at the 2017 ALA Annual Conference, 100 participants from public libraries serving large or urban communities will work with trainers from the nonprofit Everyday Democracy to learn to facilitate important, issues-based conversations with people from different backgrounds and viewpoints.  The Annual 2017 preconference workshop is full, but there are still ways for libraries of all types to get involved. Read on, or for more information and to access free online training and resources, visit www.ala.org/LTC-models. Everyday Democracy works to create a democracy that includes all voices and works for all people. Its unique Dialogueto-Change Process offers an adaptable approach to community engagement that is grounded in years of experience and learning with communities throughout the U.S. The process includes core elements of community organizing, facilitated meetings with small groups that later come together, and a connection between dialogue and action.  Given the impact of racism on our country, Everyday Democracy’s process and work pays special attention to how structural racism and other inequities affect the issues addressed.  Participants in the Annual 2017 preconference (designed for large and/ or urban public libraries) will learn the basic principles of Everyday Democracy’s approach, including organizing strategies for building strong coalitions, relation-

ship building, recruiting diverse dialogue participants, and more. But everyone can access Everyday Democracy’s materials online. The organization offers discussion guides and  how-to handbooks, as well as trainings, coaching, and other resources, and the organization works with national partners and with anchor institutions throughout the country. Visit www.everyday-democracy.org for contact information, or to explore and adapt resources for the specific needs of your community.  The Everyday Democracy workshop is offered as part of Libraries Transforming Communities: Models for Change, an initiative of ALA and the National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation (NCDD) that invites library professionals to attend a free learning series to explore various dialogue facilitation approaches and position themselves to foster conversation and lead change in their communities. Through this initiative, ALA and NCDD are providing free online and in-person trainings designed for three library types: large or urban public libraries; academic libraries; and small or rural public libraries. Trainings will be offered in 2017 and 2018. For more information about the free trainings available for your library type, visit www.ala.org/LTC.

Through his examination

of America’s successful giants and titans, Chernow invites his readers to discover their failures and foibles, uncovering enduring lessons that inform our modern era.” His books have won many awards, including the 1990 best nonfiction National Book Award for his first book, The House of Morgan, now considered a modern classic, and the Pulitzer Prize for his 2010 biography of George Washington. His second book, The Warburgs, won the prestigious George S. Eccles Prize for best business book and was cited by the ALA as one of the year’s 10 best works. In reviewing his collection of essays, The Death of the Banker, The New York Times called Chernow “as elegant an architect of monumental histories as we’ve seen in decades.” C h e r n ow’s m u c h anticipated biography of Alexander Hamilton was described by The New York Times as “moving and masterly…by far the best biography ever written about the man”. The book inspired the Broadway musical “Hamilton” on which Chernow worked with

the show’s creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda as historical consultant. As a member of the show’s creative team, Chernow was a recipient of the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical – his first theater award. A frequent contributor to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, Chernow is a familiar figure on national radio and television shows and has appeared in numerous documentaries. He has received six honorary doctorates, and recently joined the board of trustees of Humanity in Action, a global human rights organization.

ALCTS and LLAMA Present Joint Presidents’ Program on the Business of Social Impact

D

orri McWhorter, CEO of the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago, is the featured speaker at the Presidents’ Program of the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) and the Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA). The Presidents’ Program “The Business of Social Impact: Creating a World Where Everyone Has Value” will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, June 26 during the American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference & Exhibition in Chicago. Businesses and their role in society are often defined by an organization’s tax status as a “for profit” or “non-profit.” However, every business is a social enterprise, whether they know it or not, and has a role to advance society. With social entrepreneurship on the rise, the convergence of for profit and nonprofit business models is imminent. In her presentation, McWhorter explores how we can create social impact and a world where everyone has value. McWhorter became the CEO of the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago in March 2013. She has embarked upon a journey to transform the 140-year-old social service agency to a 21st century social enterprise. McWhorter is moving the agency into the digital age by re-launching the TechGYRLS program, which focuses on developing STEM awareness for girls ages 9 through 14 and introducing 3D: Developing Digital Diversity, which provides web and mobile application development training to adult

women. McWhorter was included in the inaugural list of “The Blue Network,” which comprise the top 100 innovators in Chicago by Chicago Tribune’s Blue Sky Innovation. In Spring 2015, the YWCA launched its own e-commerce site called the YShop, which provides carefully curated goods and services from businesses that support the mission of the YWCA. McWhorter received her bachelors in business administration from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her masters in business administration from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. A proven leader in the corporate and social change sectors, McWhorter prides herself on being a socially-conscious business leader. McWhorter is an active member of Chicago’s civic, business, and philanthropic communities. Currently, she serves on the board of directors for several organizations, including Chicago Finance Exchange, Chicago Child Care Society, and Search Inc. McWhorter is also a member of the executive council of Ms. Tech, advancing women businesses in technology and a board member of the Chicago Center for Arts and Technology. As an engaged community leader, McWhorter is a member of the Mayor’s Commission on a Safer Chicago and served as a member of Mayor Emanuel’s second term transition team.
