2019 ALA Annual Diversity, Equity, and Justice Panel: Call for Proposals
Members of LITA's Diversity and Inclusion Committee are seeking to fill our ALA panel slot "Diversity, Equity, and Justice Talks: In and Beyond the Library" with presentations from three panelists interested in approaching the topic of Diversity, Equity, and Justice from their own personal and/or institutional perspective. As libraries, archives, and cultural heritage institutions attempt to embed diversity and equity into the core of their institutional practices, it can be helpful to provide ample platforms for discovering, engaging with, and highlighting powerful narratives that reflect the work we must do in order to continue pushing against institutional oppression--or to highlight where we are not pushing hard
We invite potential panelists to submit brief proposals around any topic that relates to diversity and equity work at large: employing anti-racist praxis in libraries/your library work, navigating microagressions, allyship, cultural competency--to name a few. However, any and all topics are welcome, and do not need to speak directly speak to technology in any way.
Format: 60 minute panel, 3 presenters, with each presenter receiving 15 minutes to address their topic of choice.
Combined 15 minute Q&A, moderated by LITA Diversity and Inclusion committee member.
Complete a submission using the form below.
Proposal deadline: December 9, 2018
Applicants will be notified by December 20, 2018.
Please note: First time presenters are wanted and welcome! And you do not need to be a LITA or ALA member to submit.
