Plenary I: Workplace
Sponsored by Sotheby’s
In a recent higher education article, a professor provocatively stated, “The reason we don’t have more faculty of color among college faculty is that we don’t want them.” She explains her thinking point-by-point, showing how implicit and explicit biases manifests this outcome. Often times, our colleagues express a desire to make diversity and inclusion an institutional value and priority, but they realize challenges that remain in doing so. In this plenary, our speakers will examine the convergence of approaches used in higher education to disrupt status quo recruitment and employment with our goals to diversify hiring in libraries and archives.
Moderator: Curtis Small, Special Collections Librarian, University of Delaware
