Description

A well-rounded work life for librarians of color can seem (like) an impossibility. The struggle between identity, microaggressions, and culture in the field are constants. Therefore, the needs of librarians of color in terms of wellness cannot just include Hettler’s Six Dimensions of Wellness (1976), but must also address the emotional challenges of being a diverse person in librarianship. Creating a wellness wheel of this nature for librarians and paraprofessionals of color can connect the bridge between employee and employer.

These specialized aspects are intended to provide recommendations and initiatives for diverse peoples well-being and wellness:

Stop, Think, Breathe, Report, Reflect, Time, and Forward.

In-depth explorations of these topics in poster format will give librarians of color stepping stone on which to build their mindful practices and paths of wellness.
