Hello (& with crossposting apologies!),

The Ethics in Linked Data Affinity Group, an active member of LD4, is planning its activities for 2022. 

If you are unfamiliar with ELD Affinity Group, previous minutes are publically available, but recently meetings have included reports on the development of CIDOC-CRM, discussions about the treatment of gender in Wikidata with Meg Wacha of Wikimedia NYC, and work on our upcoming book, Ethics in Linked Data.

In order to schedule our meeting dates and times for next year we have set up a poll (link). If you are interested in attending please fill out the when2meet by December 21st. This is a general availability poll, so fill it out like a generic work week. Additionally, we co-convenor(s) for the coming year to help coordinate meetings and topics if you're interested in being a co-convenor, please get in touch with Bri at bmwatson1989@gmail.com.

Finally, the editors of the Ethics in Linked Data book are looking for peer reviewers for book chapters; they especially welcome reviewers interested in the ways that Linked Data interacts with gender, race, indigenity, history, and technology.
