Recommended Reads for Equity Banner

Recommend a book!

This project is sponsored by a UW Diversity and Inclusion Seed Grant and the University of Washington Libraries.

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 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 are used to build a book collection in Odegaard Library, ultimately creating a lasting legacy of UW’s commitment to and interest in equity.

A Project in Process

Recommended Reads for Equity is an ongoing project. We periodically review the recommendation form, collect the books and add them to our physical collection. You can browse the books currently in the collection alphabetically within a given genre. Thank you for your patience as we continue to work on this project.
