Seventy-Five Years of Racial Ethnic Diversity in Atla (On Demand)

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Some of the events of the past year have resulted in theological institutions assessing their own racial ethnic diversity and making plans for increasing that diversity. This year Atla celebrates 75 years of existence. This session will reflect back over the past 75 years and note what has been done. The presentation given at the ATLA Annual Conference in 2011, Sixty-Five Years of Racial Ethnic Diversity in ATLA, will be the basis for the session. At the conclusion of the 2011 presentation, the vision of the future was of an association that reflected the general population in terms of the percentage of racial ethnic persons. The session will chronicle events from the last 10 years, update data, and see how close to that vision the Association has come. Areas of possible growth will also be noted.

Please see the attached file for pre-session reading: “Sixty-Five Years of Racial Ethnic Diversity in ATLA.” Summary of Proceedings, 271-87. Chicago: American Theological Library Association, 2011.

I'm a member of the Atla Board of Directors and would love to hear your thoughts. Talk to me about the Small Libraries Interest Group and racial/ethnic diversity. As you can probably guess I miss large expanses of water (i.e. ocean).
