102nd Birthday Celebration: a Virtual Celebration of Women Leaders Past, Present, and Future

102nd Birthday Celebration: a Virtual Celebration of Women Leaders Past, Present, and Future

We are pleased to continue the annual tradition of celebrating the founding of the School of Librarianship this year with a virtual event focused on women’s leadership at the School, beginning with the School of Librarianship up through the present day. This event is in conjunction with the campus-wide Berkeley 150W History Project, which marks the 150th anniversary of the UC Regents’ unanimous approval of a resolution that women be admitted to the University on “equal terms in all respects with young men.” Visit the School of Information's own 150W History Project page here.

Professor Steven Weber, associate dean and head of school, will kick off the event with a welcome and an update on the school during these unprecedented times. Professor and former dean Anno Saxenian will give an overview of the history of women leadership at the I School. They’ll be followed by Assistant Adjunct Professor Morgan Ames (MIMS ’06), Associate Professor Jenna Burrell, Associate Professor Kimiko Ryokai, and Assistant Professor Niloufar Salehi, who will present their research areas of interests and passion projects. Time for questions will follow.
