A recent normative turn in computer science has brought concerns about fairness, bias, and accountability to the core of the field. Join this webinar for a discussion on how computational research has valuable roles to play in addressing social problems -- roles whose value can be recognized even from a perspective that aspires toward fundamental social change.
Maggie Weaver & Susan Cleyle
Tuesday, August 20 | 12:00-1:00 pm EST
The only certainty in the near future is that almost every employer will be short of funds and that every position in the organization will be under scrutiny. This webinar focuses on identifying and promoting the skills that entrepreneurial librarians need to demonstrate their value within the organization and in the job market.
