Owning It: The Story of SpeakOut and Historical Accountability
The Friends of the Dartmouth College Library cordially invite you to an event focused on two distinct but related projects undertaken by the Library. The first half of the event, from 2:30-3:30 PM, will feature SpeakOut, an oral history project that documents the history of Dartmouth’s LGBTQIA+ community. The second half, from 3:45-4:45 PM, will feature the Historical Accountability Program, which seeks to shine light on issues of diversity and inclusion from Dartmouth’s past.
The event will be held in the East Reading Room of Baker Library from 2:30-4:45 on Thursday, October 10th, and is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.

More About Rosi Kerr ’97: Director of Sustainability at Dartmouth
Rosi Kerr is the Director of Sustainability at Dartmouth. Rosi is a Dartmouth ’97 and has a Master’s Degree in Environmental Science from Yale. Rosi unwittingly entered the energy sector at Yale when she and classmates developed a business plan to turn waste from salmon processing plants in Alaska into biofuel. That led Rosi to a series of energy start-ups, first in the commercial energy sector working for a new electricity supplier, and then in the demand side energy management market. As Sustainability Director at a sustainability and energy consulting firm called GreenerU, Rosi became convinced that universities can become innovation engines to make the world better, more efficient and more sustainable. She came to Dartmouth because she believes the College is uniquely positioned to help solve some of the most interesting challenges society faces, especially those related to energy and sustainability. Rosi has led expeditions in the Arctic, led horse-packing trips in the American west and has served on the board of Climate Ride, Vineyard Power and the Upper Valley Rowing Foundation. She lives on a farm South Strafford, Vermont with her partner and three kids.
Schuyler Bailar is the first openly transgender NCAA Division I swimmer (currently attending Harvard University) and is the son of Gregor Bailar ’85. He gave a talk, “Breaking Boundaries”, at Dartmouth on March 2, 2018, hosted by Shira Evans, Coordinator of Sports Nutrition. Afterwards, OPAL (Office of Pluralism and Leadership) hosted a round table discussion at the Triangle House and DGALA co-sponsored the dinner. Students were given the opportunity to engage in important conversation and address how to cope with challenging parents when coming out plus navigating other social situations. Thanks Shira and OPAL for organizing!
