Committee Chair: Laura Gonzales, University of Florida
The Diversity Committee is designed as a forum for scholars in technical, professional, and scientific communication to communicate and collaborate about issues of diversity and social justice that impact our discipline. Ideally, this forum will bring together critical discussions about various types of scholarship, with themes that include (but are not limited to) quantitative and qualitative research, pedagogy, community-based projects, and literature reviews.
Moreover, the aim of this network is to provide support for one another’s research and teaching, foster potential collaborations for projects, promote collective brainstorming, and to increase mutual encouragement to help each of us remember we are not alone in imagining more socially just and more diverse voices in the teaching and practice of technical, professional, and scientific communication.
The diversity listserv is a moderated listserv, which means that each subscription and each message is held pending moderator approval. This ensures that the list remain a safe space to discuss issues of diversity and inclusion. Thus, you may see a delay should you subscribe or post to the list, while your request is reviewed.
Members of this committee created a bibliography in Spring/Summer of 2015 and the Diversity Committee’s Requests to the Executive Committee in Spring/Summer 2020.
