Friends of the Libraries Virtual "Lunch-In"
Please join us for the Friends of the Libraries virtual "lunch-in" where Mayor Nan Whaley will discuss Leadership in Challenging Times.
Tornadoes, a mass shooting, and a pandemic. Dayton has seen its share of challenges over the last two years. Mayor Nan Whaley will discuss the challenges of leading the city of Dayton during these difficult times.
Leaders today face the prospect of working to unite communities in a time when citizens don’t just have different opinions, but disagree on basic facts that form the foundation of those opinions. Mayor Whaley will share how leaders navigate challenges in a polarized political climate and how she evaluates information to bring community members together. She will also address what role we community members play as active citizens striving toward shared visions and outcomes for our region.
The University Libraries' Head of Instruction and Research Services, Mandy Shannon, will share strategies for fact-checking information, improving news literacy, and being responsible consumers of news and other media when Navigating the News.
