Preparation for Leadership and Professional Success


Dr. Winston will address leadership opportunities in libraries and in the profession more broadly, including leadership roles in professional associations and in research and publishing. The discussion will focus on the current representation of Asian American librarians in the profession and in library management, in particular. The research related to the factors affecting the career choices and representation of Asian Americans across a range of professions will be considered. The presentation will highlight various approaches to leadership preparation, including leadership education and leadership development and mentoring and coaching.
