Here is the next installment of the Diversify IT book club. We met in Septembet and had a great discussion on the first couple of chapters of our first book, I’m still here. Black dignity in a world made for whiteness by Austin Channing Brown.
We agreed to continue the conversation on this book for our next meeting. So if you were hoping to discuss this book and could not make it, here is another chance.
Today we discussed the stories behind our names and racial consideration that were made, or not, with our naming or the naming of our children. We also discussed how we first became aware of race and what it meant for us, and what diversity or the lack of it was like in our childhood spaces.
Next time come prepared to discuss chapters 3 and 4 (pages 40 to 66). Below are some questions to ponder about these chapters. These discussions can be nicely freewheeling but a little structure and ability to consider ideas ahead is nice for the introverts among us. Hope to see you there.

In 2019, Duke Libraries staff conducted a study called “Understanding the experiences and needs of Black students at Duke”. They convened discussion groups and did research, including analyzing the Libraries’ 2020 student satisfaction survey. Their goal was to “understand students’ experiences in the Libraries and on campus to improve how all students interact with library services, facilities, and materials.” Join us on Thursday, Oct. 22 via Zoom to hear from our Duke colleagues Emily Daly and Joyce Chapman about how they did this study and what they learned from it. It will bring great insights to how we can continue to address racial equity on our IT teams and services, even if you don’t directly interact with students.
