Engaging Our Communities Through EDI Work: Our Perspectives

Wednesday, November 17 at 9 AM PDT

Zoom Link: https://sjsu.zoom.us/j/82868881853 

Presenters: Ray Pun & Patrice Green

This session will share how two librarians engage their communities through the values of equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI). As the field of librarianship continues to evolve, library workers have become more cognizant of what it means to share authority and knowledge inside and outside of their silos while working toward a more inclusive set of values. Recognizing librarianship as more than internal, transactional exchanges with limited audiences is essential to engaging in more reparative and meaningful work with community partners. From special collections to programming, both speakers will address the opportunities and challenges in integrating EDI into their respective activities.

Ray PunBio: Ray Pun is the Education/Outreach Manager at the Hoover Institution Library & Archives, Stanford University. He holds a Doctorate in Education, a Master of Library Science, and a Master of Arts in East Asian Studies.

Ray serves as a CIRI International Advisory Board Member for SJSU School of Information. Most recently, he was a merit reviewer for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA)'s broadband connectivity programs to award over $1.5 billion dollars to enhance national broadband goals and efforts.  

Patrice R. GreenBio: Patrice R. Green is the inaugural Curator for African American Collections at Penn State University. She holds master's degrees in Public History and Library and Information Science from the University of South Carolina, where she focused her studies in museums and material culture, archives and preservation management, historic preservation, and 20th century US history.
