Virtual Table Talks

SMA’s Virtual Table Talks are one-hour informal discussions to promote the sharing of knowledge between archivists working in Mississippi galleries, libraries, archives, and museums. Each talk will feature a speaker who will share their experience and knowledge on a given topic. For more information on this series, or if you are interested in presenting, please contact Carrie P.

Next Talk: “Intersectional DEI,” presented by Michelle Ganz of History Factory, December 3, 2021 at 12:00 noon

Diversity and Inclusion must be intersectional to be successful. The speaker will discuss strategies for management/leadership and staff for how to create a truly diverse and inclusive environment that fosters and supports social justice efforts in archival environments. The ideas that will be discussed can be applied to a variety of situations from museums and academic institutions to your daily lives.  Change comes from a thousand little acts, not one giant leap.
