Support Diversity This GivingTuesday!

November 24, 2020

Celebrate GivingTuesday on December 1, by making a donation to the ILA Diversity Scholarship Fund. The fund supports ILA’s efforts to increase diversity in the profession and the Sylvia Murphy Williams Scholars, Illinois recipients of ALA Spectrum Scholarships

The ILA Diversity Scholarship Fund allows underrepresented groups an array of educational, networking, and travel opportunities that may not otherwise be accessible; and allows for inclusion and diversity beyond library programming and services. 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in librarianship is something we can all work towards so, if you can, please make a donation. We thank you in advance for your support of diversity in librarianship.
