IDC Fall Institutional Members’ Symposium

Please join us on Wednesday, October 26, 2022 (9:30am-12:00pm) for the AAO’s Fall Institutional Members’ Symposium, organized by the Institutional Development Committee (IDC).

We are pleased to be joined by Jacinda Bain, who will be discussing work being done to represent racialized women working in technology, a project that is an element of the Tapestry Project. The City of Ottawa Archives’ mandate is to preserve the cultural memory and history of Ottawa’s communities, with the Tapestry initiative they are seeking records to make the collection more representative of the many different communities within Ottawa.

One of the gaps in the collection is the presence of racialized women working in the high technology sector (including the high tech sector itself). This gap analysis project that is an element of Tapestry is seeking to provide an efficient means to gather and identify what records may exist in this underrepresented community. There will be time for questions following this presentation.

Following their presentation, we will host a discussion forum on how to preserve (and locate) records of underrepresented groups within our own communities.

We will conclude with a members’ roundtable to discuss any topics or concerns that our institutional members may have.

The fall symposium will be held exclusively online via Zoom.

The Archives Association of Ontario (AAO) is led by a committed community of volunteers from across the province.
