We are pleased to share the application information<https://amianet.org/amia-diversity-and-inclusion-fellowship/> for the first cohort of the AMIA Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship Program (ADIFP)!
This Fellowship Program is the result of collaborative work that AMIA and the NFPB Diversity Task Force have done to assess and evaluate the state of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field of audiovisual archiving. Those efforts have made clear that the profession needs to take major steps to become more equitable and inclusive and more representative of the communities it serves and the histories it shepherds.
The goal of the ADIFP is to support the professional journeys of four aspiring individuals from traditionally underrepresented communities to find their learning objectives and help guide their development as professionals in the field of audiovisual archiving. Program activities are meant to complement paid work experience provided by internship host sites.
Please share the ADIFP Application<https://amianet.org/amia-diversity-and-inclusion-fellowship/> widely, and encourage emerging professionals you know to consider applying.
Applications are being reviewed on a rolling basis, in line with the internship deadlines of our partner host sites. Any questions or comments can be sent to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.
Our thanks to our partner host sites - Ulu'ulu: The Henry Ku'ualoha Giugni Moving Image Archive of Hawai'i; California Revealed; National Museum of African American History & Culture; and George Blood LP. If you are interested in becoming a host site for this program or future programs, please contact us<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.
