Dialogue: Shorish and Nowviskie
This dialogue offers perspectives from two differently-positioned library leaders on their collaborative work to advance equity and racial justice in the context of a predominantly white academic library and educational technology organization. Topics covered include issues of scale and temporality in reckoning with structural racism; developing a workplace culture that supports growth and learning while mitigating harm; building and sustaining community both within and beyond formal institutions; developing personal and organizational accountability; and challenges in the use of data for assessing progress and working authentically toward change.
