College Library’s Meeting about Meetings Committee’s primary goal is to make meetings effective and inclusive for everyone as much of the time as possible.
The committee’s work started with discussions of both GLS and College Library values, the Climate and Staff Engagement (CaSE) Subcommittee's “Creating Group Agreements” document, and the Anti-Oppression Resource & Training Alliance (AORTA) group agreements. Based on these discussions, the AORTA group agreements were adapted to fit our values and work environment. These adapted group agreements were then shared back with CaSE and other committees who are customizing them further. The Meetings about Meetings committee continues to plan training, discussions, and other ways to give feedback around the shared values, group agreements, and best practices for facilitation of and participation in both in person and online meetings.
