Webinar: Caring about Equity, Diversity and Representation

June 20 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm UTC

Caring about Equity, Diversity and Representation: a Conversation on Ethical Indexing will be hosted by Paula Butler on June 20 from 1-2 p.m. EDT.

As part of our continuing education as indexers, this webinar offers insights into questions of racialized language in historical texts, author and indexer bias, Indigenous naming practices vs. colonial terms, offensive subject matter, multiculturalism, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, related indexing strategies, and more! Language change can happen quickly, and it is essential to remain up-to-date in our line of work. There will be time for discussion and questions.

Paula Butler is a long-time educator and indexer (butlersbookindexing.ca) who has and continues to work on projects in line with anti-racism, global economic justice, gender justice, de-colonized settler-Indigenous relations, and other social justice issues throughout her life.

The webinar is free and is available to members only.
