In just a few weeks, CCAHA will present Diversity in Collections Care: Many Voices, a two-day virtual colloquium, March 23-24 at 10:00 AM. This event will promote the exchange of research, dialogue, and inspiration, and we're excited to announce that more than a dozen speakers have been added to the program. Participants will be able to select from a variety of sessions, and you can register and view session and speaker details on our Events page. Click here to learn more.
We also believe this colloquium will be more engaging with your collaboration! We invite you to share a diversity initiative that you support at your institution. Submissions should be pre-recorded videos of no more than 15-minutes in length to be streamed on March 23rd, after which you are encouraged to join the Colloquium for a live, moderated Q&A session with the audience. Tell us all how you make access to collections care more welcoming for a broad variety of populations, such as community members, trustees, staff, and more. Has your organization strengthened preservation activities to support curatorship of rich diversity in collections? What have been your successes and challenges? Contact Stephenie Bailey at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-545-0613 x.314 if you are interested in adding your voice to this program.
