Discussion recommended changes to the Conference Code of Conduct

by Martin Garnar on Fri, Aug 4, 2017 at 01:43 pm

Hello Councilors.  I'm sharing this in my role as co-chair of the ALA Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Implementation Working Group.  One of the recommendations that was delegated to us from the list of recommendations generated by the Task Force on EDI was to develop a statement related to EDI for conference participants.  After discussion, we felt the best way to approach this was to suggest changes to the existing Code of Conduct for consideration by Conference Services, and we also wanted to share this with Council so that you could comment on these suggested revisions, with the p

Hello Councilors.  I'm sharing this in my role as co-chair of the ALA Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Implementation Working Group.  One of the recommendations that was delegated to us from the list of recommendations generated by the Task Force on EDI was to develop a statement related to EDI for conference participants.  After discussion, we felt the best way to approach this was to suggest changes to the existing Code of Conduct for consideration by Conference Services, and we also wanted to share this with Council so that you could comment on these suggested revisions, with the plan to send both our suggested changes and any feedback from Council to Conference Services to be considered at the same time.

Please note that we used the Code of Conduct from the National Diversity in Libraries Conference as a reference for our suggestions, which are largely related to the list of prohibited behaviors.  The revisions are attached to this post as a Word document showing the tracked changes.

We would like to send all materials to Conference Services by the end of August, so please make your comments by August 31st. As we know that Connect will be not fully accessible during the migration to a new platform, you are welcome to send your comments to me if you're unable to comment via Connect, so send them to mgarnar@uccs.edu.

Thanks, and please let me know if you have any questions.
