The Jean E. Coleman lecture series honors Dr. Jean E.

The Jean E. Coleman lecture series honors Dr. Jean E.

This year's lecture will be presented by Janice Rice, retired Outreach Coordinator at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries. Rice retired from the University of Wisconsin following a distinguished 36-year career and a long record of commitment to improving diversity issues in the University of Wisconsin General Library System and the library profession through active participation in the Wisconsin Library Association, the Association of College & Research Libraries, the ALA Ethnic and Multicultural Information Exchange Round Table and the American Indian Library Association. For her efforts, Rice has received several awards, including the UW-Madison and UW-System Outstanding Woman of Color in Education Award in 2009 and the Distinguished Service Award from the American Indian Library Association in 2012.

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

by Lessa Pelayo-Lozada on Wed, Jan 25, 2017 at 02:16 pm

**The Town Hall Meeting will be in lieu of an in-person ODLOS Advisory Committee Meeting**

 

Location: GWCC B203

**The Town Hall Meeting will be in lieu of an in-person ODLOS Advisory Committee Meeting**

 

Location: 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.

The Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services (ODLOS) Advisory Committee provides advice and support to the ODLOS on the areas of diversity, literacy and outreach.  The Advisory Committee is comprised of member groups that represent diverse viewpoints and constituents and will provide a two way forum to communicate member needs to ODLOS and for the Office to share information with member groups.  The Advisory Committee members will offer dynamic perspectives to help guide the strategic direction of ODLOS, will assess program effectiveness, encourage the exploration of new ideas and initiatives, and strengthen the growth of equity and inclusion within the American Library Association and the profession as a whole.  Members are appointed to the ODLOS Advisory Committee through recommendations from the Presidents/Chairs of the stakeholder committees and organizations, with an additional three members appointed by the ALA President-elect.
