Session list:

The K’acha Willaykuna Knowledge Equity Working Group actively explores stewardship of indigenous knowledge works through decolonial information practices. Through discussions, flash-lectures, hands-on workshops and community projects, the group actively works to support the preservation of Indigenous knowledge in response to marked knowledge equity gaps of non-Western languages, cultures and histories. This session will reflect on the role of cultural humility in the development of the K’acha Willaykuna Collaborative as an example of closing the gap between EDI values and practice.

Diversity and equity are fundamental values of librarianship. How can we take these values and make them actionable at our respective organizations? Learn how to create and sustain an equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) committee at your library, including how to set goals, write a charge statement, and strategies that can be used to promote continuing education for staff on topics related to equity, indigeneity, accessibility, and inclusion. 

A presentation on how to incorporate anti-racist ideas, concepts and actions that can act as a model for anti-oppression library practices. Participants will be able to:

  • explain the concept of anti-racism 
  • identify racist policies, procedures and practices in their library
  • apply anti-racist concepts in the library
  • critique current library policies with an anti-racist analysis
