Though the “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Nine Conversations that Matter to Health Sciences Librarians with Jessica Pettitt” webinar series has finished, all 9 recorded sessions are available whether it is your first time to hear them or if you just want to review the content.

Conversations that Matter is both a great introduction to DEI for those who may be just learning but is also provides steps for those ready to act. The series content included both internal and external dialogues about our similarities and our differences. Each session showcased examples across various subordinated and marginalized inter-sectional identities as well as provided time to reflect, organize, and do our own work in claiming responsibility for our privileges and full lived experiences.

The 9 conversations include:

  1. Diversity & Social Justice: A Starting Place
  2. Unconscious Bias: Perceptions of Self & Others
  3. Being a Better Ally to All
  4. Working Across Difference: Making Better Connections
  5. That’s Not Funny! Or is it?
  6. Knowing what you don’t know: Medical Micro-aggressions
  7. I am … Safe Zones: Sticks and Stones LGBTQA 101
  8. I am … Safe Zone: Gender This!
  9. I am … Safe Zone: Messages I Learned

Visit the “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Nine Conversations that Matter to Health Sciences Librarians with Jessica Pettitt” webinar series webpage to access the recordings and the provided documents.
