Stuck in Neutral: Library Values & Daily Practice

Stuck in Neutral: Library Values & Daily Practice

Sunday, February 11
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Location: Hilton Denver City Center, Matchless

 

 

What do we mean when we say libraries and library work ought to be neutral? As this Midwinter Meeting's Presidential Program features a debate among leading thinkers in the field, the Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Implementation Working Group wants to know what you, ALA members, think about neutrality of libraries and librarianship. Join us for a townhall-style discussion on whether or not libraries can (and should be) neutral in the 21st century.

Event Office for Diversity, Literacy, and Outreach Services (ODLOS) Town Hall Meeting

GWCC B203

GWCC B203

This past year has been extraordinarily hard on communities of color and marginalized identities. Numerous shootings, sexual assaults, attacks in the legislation against the rights of GLBT communities and an election that continues to challenge our identity as a country. As librarians, we continue to advocate and fight for the communities we serve, but we need to recognize how our personal identities impact our work and our profession. This town hall was proposed as an opportunity to come together and start some healing within our organization. We will review the progress of initiatives within the Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services and across the association, then we want to hear from you. The Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services invites everyone to join us in this space to reflect together.

Meeting Type: Committee Meeting

Interests: Diversity, Literacy, Outreach Services

Sponsors: ALA

Cost: Included with full conference registration.

Open/Closed: Open
