Diversity and Inclusion Town Hall, March 4, 2022
Join the Diversity and Inclusion committee for an open conversation about the WOC + Lib Statement Against White Appropriation of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color’s Labor (https://www.wocandlib.org/features/2021/9/3/statement-against-white-appropriation-of-black-indigenous-and-people-of-colors-labor). This town hall will actively engage participants in creating ideas for reflection and action that we can take in response to this statement. Breakout rooms will be used to generate ideas and facilitate conversation. We will use the Diversity and Inclusion Committee’s prior email on this topic (available at https://bit.ly/woc-lib-arlis) as a starting point for discussion.
This event leads up to the Diversity Forum, which will take place during ARLIS/NA’s 2022 conference in Chicago. Addressing the issues raised by this statement is an essential part of creating cultures of inclusive excellence in our libraries.
