Call for Panelists – 2019 ALA Annual Diversity, Equity, and Justice Panel

LITA Blog - Wed, 2018-11-28 13:54

LITA is seeking proposals for panelists for our 2019 ALA Annual “Diversity, Equity, and Justice Talks: In and Beyond the Library” program in Washington, DC! The submission deadline is Sunday December 9, 2018.

Submit your proposal

The program will consist of presentations from three panelists interested in approaching the topic of Diversity, Equity, and Justice from their own personal and/or institutional perspective. We invite potential panelists to submit brief proposals around any topic that relates to diversity and equity work at large: employing anti-racist praxis in libraries/your library work, navigating microagressions, allyship, cultural competency–to name a few. However, any and all topics are welcome, and don’t necessarily need to speak directly to technology.

LITA encourages participation from underrepresented groups, such as women, people of color, and LGBTQA+. We also value diverse perspectives from different types and sizes of libraries and individuals who can bring a fresh voice.

Panelists will be selected based on their proposals, experience, and overall balance to the panel.
