Continuing the conversation started at ARLIS/NA 2019, the LGBTQ Special Interest Group proposes a workshop focused on finding stability and confidence amongst the uncertainty and new challenges that one experiences as an art information professional. The workshop will address how identity, experience, and professional transitions impact the workplace. Five panelists, representing a major art museum library; an academic library at a small public university; land-grant and public university research libraries; and nonprofit collections will discuss how experience, identity, circumstance, and position influences and interacts with professional identities. 
Presentations and breakout sessions will include ways in which speakers have handled: successes through workplace, personal, and health challenges; new leadership expectations; changeover of duties; promotion to management; anxiety to new positions and responsibilities; overcoming library/institution/city/geographic  community boundaries, and solutions to address institution siloing. 
Proposed schedule for the 2 hour workshop: 
Introductions and overview (5 minutes)
Speakers Presentations (10-15 minutes each, 60 minutes) 
Group breakouts, led by panelists (40mins)
Critical Engagement (10 mins)
Workshop Wrap-Up (5-10 minutes)

This is a free workshop.
