Welcome to Management Book Club! This monthly meetup — part business book club and part consult group — is intended for bookstore managers and owners to discuss selected management books, share best practices in staff management, solicit advice on staff development, and grow their skills as leaders in their stores. Each month, ABA Director of Education Kim Hooyboer will lead a discussion on that month’s selection.
The November selection is: Belonging Rules: Five Crucial Actions That Build Unity and Foster Performance by Brad Deutser (9781637744024)

 

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights recognizes that book bans may violate federal civil rights laws in certain circumstances. In this webinar, OCR will introduce the office, the laws it enforces, and the process to resolve potential violations.

The Office for Civil Rights enforces several federal civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination in schools, colleges and universities that receive federal financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Education. Federal laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex (including sexual orientation and gender identity), disability, and age. Any individual can file a complaint with the Office for Civil Rights.
