STATEMENT OF INCLUSION
The Texas OER Summit invites academic librarians, faculty, and administrators with an interest in Open Educational Resources to attend a strategic planning summit to consider OER at a statewide level. We hope to develop a set of shared goals and strategies that can be implemented across the state.
The Summit Planning Committee, including organizers Texas State Library and Archives Commission and Texas Digital Library, as well as our hosts at UT San Antonio, are committed to the presence and contributions of all persons regardless of age, culture, abilities, bodies, ethnic origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, nationality, race, religion, or socioeconomic status. We believe that libraries are stewarded and utilized by diverse participants, and that supporting the visibility of such diversity enhances the experiences of all library community members. As such, this Summit values inclusiveness and the maintenance of a safe and accountable space for all participants.
The Summit Planning Committee, hosts, and organizers are dedicated to providing collaborative and conference experiences that are free from all forms of harassment, and inclusive of all people. We know that the best problem-solving and critical thinking happens when people with a wide array of experiences and perspectives come together to work in comfort and safety as peers. We therefore expect participants in the Texas OER Summit to help create thoughtful and respectful environments where that interaction can take place.
The above statement was crafted from examples set forth by the Different Games Conferenceand the Digital Library Federation Code of Conduct.
