Save the Date: Live Tweet on Friday, June 20th

Please join SAA’s Women Archivists Roundtable on Friday, June 20th from 12-3 PM EST for our live tweet discussion, “Breaking the Digital Ceiling: Women and Technology in Archives.” The live tweet will be co-hosted by Erin O’Meara of the Gates Archives, Gabriela Redwine of the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and Courtney Mumma of Artefactual Systems, Inc.

Considering that women are traditionally underrepresented in IT-related fields, how are born-digital archives impacting the female-dominated archives profession?  Are electronic materials and emerging technologies shifting the nature of gendered opportunity? How can we promote women in leadership positions in digital archives and foster a diverse community of practitioners?

Follow @WomenArchivists on Twitter and we’ll be using #SAAwar during the live tweet. We’re looking forward to hearing your thoughts, questions, and ideas!
