The AAO’s Professional Development Committee presents

Safe Spaces for LGBTQ2S+ Archivists

The Braver Space virtual sessions are safe spaces set aside and reserved for archives workers and records managers from historically excluded groups in our profession to connect with one another in an informal, participant-driven environment. 

These sessions are open to students, emerging, and established professionals, as well as those working in volunteer and activist roles. Note that this space is only open to lesbian, gay, biexual, trangender, queer, two-spirited, and sexual or gender minorities identifying (LGBTQ2S+)  archives workers and records managers.

Date: Wednesday, November 24th, 2021, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Location: Online via Zoom

Recording: These sessions will not be recorded.

Registration:  FREE (AAO members, student members, and non-members)

This meeting is governed by the AAO’s Code of Conduct as well as a guideline of confidentiality. It is essential that all participants agree to keep confidential the identities of individual participants and any names that may be mentioned during their time together, as well as any attributed specific comments. Agreement about this point is required.
