SAA’s Women’s Archivists Roundtable announces a live tweet on diversity and “Lean In”:
Attention, WARriors! It’s time for our next live tweet! Save the date for the Lean In Too Live Tweet on Friday, September 26, 12-3pm EDT.
There has been plenty of discussion concerning the positive messages from Lean In, but one major criticism has been the lack of diversity of perspective. Now’s your chance to break Lean In wide open. Can it apply to all? Does it simply reinforce existing structures of privilege? Can it be adapted to more effectively speak to the needs of minority groups in the archives profession and beyond? What can we do to contribute towards more equitable workplaces? Join our host, Carrie Hintz of the Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Columbia University, for a great online discussion.
We’ll use the hashtag #SAAWAR. Follow along and join the conversation!
