The Inclusive Internship Initiative (III) offers paid, summer-long internships to high school students at their local public library. Through III, students from diverse backgrounds are introduced to careers in librarianship, library mentors practice leadership skills, and host libraries grow new audiences through outreach and programming. Any public library in the U.S. is welcome to apply. Applications for the Summer 2020 cohort will be accepted from January 6–February 3, 2020. Is your library interested in applying to be a part of the 2020 cohort? During the webinar, you’ll hear from past III mentors who will share their insights and experiences from participating in this program. PLA staff will go over the application process, deadlines, and program requirements. PLA staff and past mentors will be available to answer any questions your library has about applying to or participating in the program.
The concept of positions in communication is embedded in the grammar of most languages. First position, second position, and third position translate into first person (I, me, mine, we, ours), second person (you and yours), and third person (he, she, it, they, theirs). These three positions represent how we see the world and our relationships with other people. And, as with most models of human behavior, there is an upside and a down side. Ideally, we can move among the three positions, which translate into personal responsibility and initiative, empathy and compassion, and objectivity and rationality. However, sometimes we get stuck in one position, which keeps us from being as productive and influential as we want to be. Learn what each position stands for and how to incorporate them in how you think and act in your workplace.
