The Core Diversity and Inclusion Committee is seeking presentation proposals for lightning talks for the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Special Projects Showcase at the October Core Forum in Salt Lake City. This session has been assigned to the Access & Equity program track, and will be presented on October 14, 2022, from 2:30 – 3:30 pm Mountain Time.
Over the last few years, particularly since the 2020 summer of racial reawakening, many libraries have started special projects and initiatives to address diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism in our collections, technology, staffing and leadership. This showcase will highlight some of the ongoing or completed projects by librarians at public, academic, and special libraries.
Presenters will be selected to ensure that this showcase is of value to librarians and administrators in a wide variety of roles and from many types of libraries. This session will be live and in-person only, so there is no virtual option; all presenters must be in attendance.
Proposals are due by Friday, September 9, 2022.
