ALAO/SWON Innovation Conversation: What We (don't) Talk About When We Talk About Diversity
ALA lists “diversity” as one of its 11 core values. Lately, the rhetoric around “diversity” has expanded to include the terms “inclusion” and “equity.” Typically, when we use the word “diversity” we refer to specific categories of identity: race, gender, ability, and sexual orientation, to name a few. As colleges and universities engage in more diversity initiatives, how is the conversation around diversity, equity, and inclusion taking shape? What do we mean when we talk about diversity in academic libraries? What is left unsaid when these conversations take place? Focusing on race, this session will challenge attendees to unpack, rethink and reframe the diversity conversation.
