The Diversity Working Group St George

The Diversity Working Group (DWG) was formed in 2019 in response to a dissatisfaction with the absence of a critical race perspective in the curriculum and a seemingly general lack of awareness and concern for racial equity at the Faculty of Information. In the years since, we have advocated for the advancement of equity within information studies by organizing workshops, reading groups, & special events, as well as pushing for systemic change through faculty and admin consultation.

We are archivists, librarians, UX designers, and data scientists who seek to move information toward a more liberated future by improving the experiences of Black, Indigenous, and Persons of Colour (BIPOC) and LGBTQIA+ information professionals at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Information and beyond. Beyond our advocacy work, we also aim to be a safe space for QTBIPOC folks to feel safe, supported, and empowered amidst the overwhelming whiteness and heteropatriarchy of the field of information studies.
