Join the Issues & Advocacy section for a discussion on labor equity. The meeting will begin with updates from I&A followed by the presentation and interactive session "Designing for labor equity: Evaluative tools from the Collective Responsibility project" with Sandy Rodriguez and Ruth Tillman. This session will examine how library, archives, and museum professionals -- whether as managers designing projects and positions, as grant reviewers, or as professional peers -- can create a present that equitably supports workers in both term and contingent positions. Members of the IMLS-funded project "Collective Responsibility: National Forum on Labor Practices for Grant-Funded Digital Positions" will share tools developed to guide practices for managers and grant reviewers while introducing evaluative tools for labor equity that have been developed or are in development for LAM managers, grant reviewers, and workers. Working together, attendees will practice using the tools to evaluate the labor aspects of a recent, current, or planned project. For more information on the Collective Responsibility project, please visit https://laborforum.diglib.org/.

This is a free event! RSVP required for Zoom security.
