Now more than ever, we want to call attention to the important work in the archival community that gives voice to perspectives, histories, and ethics that value diversity and pluralism in all of their forms. There are amazing projects, initiatives, and other efforts going on that deserve recognition and celebration.

Please consider nominating a colleague, project, or institution for the Society of American Archivists (SAA) 2017 Diversity Award. This award recognizes an individual, group, or institution for outstanding contributions in advancing diversity within the archives profession, SAA, or the archival record. Nominees will have demonstrated significant achievement in the form of activism, education, outreach, publication, service, or other initiatives in the archives field.

The process is easy:

Eligible Nominees include any individual, group, or organization. To encourage SAA member participation, preference may be given to SAA individual and/or institutional members.

Nomination requirements: a brief form and two letters of support submitted by February 28, 2017, from any individual, group, or institution.
