Caucuses

It is important for marginalized groups to have exclusive spaces where they can come together for purposes of healing, sharing, and organization. The Boston Library Consortium's Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Community of Interest (EDI COI) has established caucuses for underrepresented library workers or LIS students (at any level) in the New England region.  Those who identify as Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), and/or LGBTQIA+ may register for a caucus using the links below.

Anyone interested in creating a caucus for another underrepresented group should contact us at caucus@blc.org

The BIPOC Caucus meets monthly via Zoom every third Monday from 1:00-2:30 PM EST.

Registration is required. Please register here.

The LGBTQIA+ Caucus meets monthly via Zoom every first Monday from 1:00-2:30 PM EST.

**In observance of the Labor Day holiday and Rosh Hashanah, the September 2021 LGBTQIA+ Caucus has been rescheduled from September 6 to Monday, September 13.**

Registration is required. Please register here.
