EAC Community Hour: Looking Back and Looking Forward

Over the past year, many inequities have risen to the surface for GLAM and visual resources professionals. The EAC continues to hold monthly Community Hours to address and navigate these issues and roadblocks (see http://vraweb.org/about/committees/equitableaction/). Our aim for this Hour is to both provide a narrative overview of the events and concerns of the past year, as well as an open space for members to communicate their current situations and suggestions for future solutions. We would like to capture the ways in which members are feeling unsupported and the ways in which we can actively contribute as a committee, an organization, and as a field.

We encourage attendees to bring answers to the following questions or send an email to ea@vraweb.org for anonymous questions (you may also use this form to tell the EAC your concerns related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility: https://bit.ly/38Y8nGZ):
  • What inequities have you faced or witnessed at your institution?
  • What are you most concerned about for yourself, your job, and for the field? Do you feel safe and supported in your current work environment?
  • How can we support each other locally, nationally, and as an organization? What do we need from each other to support each other in our roles and as a community/organization?
  • What can the EAC do for you? What can VRA? What changes does the field at large need to see?
