Help shape the future of the Diverse Sexuality and Gender Section

  • 1.  Help shape the future of the Diverse Sexuality and Gender Section

    Posted 12 days ago
    All, 

    Please join the Diverse Sexuality and Gender Section annual business meeting on August 10th to help shape the future of the section. We're holding a very informal brainstorming session to solicit idea and ways for the DSGS to be of service to LGBTQ+ archivists and archives, as well as the larger archival community. 

    Some questions we'd like to address include:
    • How can DSGS generate new membership and involvement in the section?
      • Suggestions for how to handle lack of volunteers for leadership positions
    • What type of support and community are LGBTQ+ archivists interested in or needing?
    • Is there interest in a particular type of programming?
      • Examples could include Zoom talks, Twitter chats, a blog series, LGBTQ+ related resource sharing 
    • Would current and future membership be interested in attending regular meetings?
      • Meetings could serve multiple purposes - project and resource sharing sessions, show & tells, planning programming for the section, etc. 

    Aug 10, 2022 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM CST

    We look forward to meeting with anyone and everyone who has ideas and would like to be involved. Please feel free to share this meeting invite liberally. 

    Thank you, 
    Nikki Lynn Thomas and Eli Landaverde, DSGS Co-Chairs
