Wear What You Want: Dressing to Lead in Libraries by Sarah Houghton

Sarah Houghton


An interesting discussion happened today on Twitter about clothing and librarianship. It all started with Jaime Corris Hammond (@jaimebc) posting the following:

“Let’s talk about perceptions of leaders. How did you change your appearance when you became a manager/director?”

My response was a truthful:

“Bwa ha ha ha ha….ha ha ha ha ha….*gasp*sputter* I DIDN’T :D ”

A smattering of conversation involving a dozen people then followed, with some themes coming out that I feel are worth commenting on.
