The AMIA Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship Program is the result of collaborative work done by AMIA and the NFPB Diversity Task Force 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 AMIA Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship Program Pilot 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. Program activities include:
The Fellowship Pilot is made possible through a contract with the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR), with funds provided by the National Film Preservation Board.
This list will continue to be updated as we add sites
