Leaders Wanted Doctoral Options Fair

The ALA Office for Diversity, Literacy, and Outreach Services and the ALISE Multicultural, Ethnic, and Humanistic Concerns Special Interest Group invite you to contribute information about your doctoral program through the Leaders Wanted website.  If you would like to contribute content and participate in future virtual events please indidcate your interest by completing the form below or contacting us at diversity@ala.org.

Our Leaders Wanted online informational sessions and resources are inspired by the Leaders Wanted events held each year at the ALA Annual Conference with the goal of recruiting librarians and LIS students of color to LIS doctoral programs. We believe doctoral education is a key to diversifying leadership in the academy and in the field of library and information science. These events occurred annually from 2008 to 2018 and were organized by the University of Washington iSchool and ALA's Spectrum Scholarship Program. We've developed Leaders Wanted now as online series to increase access to this network and resources.
