Recommended Reads for Equity engages the UW community in critical conversations, reading, critical thinking and community building; all of which are essential to lifelong learning and engaged citizenship.
Guided by the UW community, we will collect recommendations for books about equity, diversity, and inclusion and create opportunities to share recommendations and hold conversations and discussions as a whole campus community.
The community’s recommendations will be used to build a new book collection in Odegaard Library, ultimately creating a lasting legacy of UW’s commitment to and interest in equity.
This project is sponsored by a UW Diversity and Inclusion Seed Grant and the University of Washington Libraries.
Recommended Reads for Equity is an ongoing project. We have linked recommended books to titles the UW Libraries already owns and will add links when a copy of a recommended book is acquired. Thank you for your patience as we continue to work on this project.
