Tara Robertson

Tara works at Mozilla as the Diversity & Inclusion Strategic Partner. She is tasked with ensuring one of the darlings of the technology industry to be more inclusive, diverse and open. Tara has been championing open communities, open source, open access, and open education prior to her affiliation with Mozilla for over a decade. As the Code4lib community continues to wrestle with these very issues, it is a timely opportunity to invite her to speak to us since we are on the left coast this year.

Mark Matienzo

Mark works at Stanford as the Collaboration & Interoperability Architect for Digital Library Systems and Services.

Mark has worked at the intersection of technology, libraries, and systems for over a decade, serving as a technologist, advocate, and facilitator for cross-institutional projects. Prior to joining Stanford, Mark worked as an archivist, technologist, and strategist specializing in born-digital materials and metadata management, at institutions including the Digital Public Library of America, Yale University Library, The New York Public Library, and the American Institute of Physics. Mark would be an excellent keynote speaker because his long track record of involvement in cross-disciplinary and intra-institutional initiatives has given him a unique exposure to projects that touch on all aspects of library systems and tools. In addition, he is an outspoken advocate on a wide range of issues including labor, the environment, and leadership in libraries.
