SustainRT administers awards to recognize and promote work being done in libraries to meet the triple bottom line of sustainability and create more resilient communities, and to build a more inclusive association. The awards will encourage sustainable practice in the library community including decision-making that’s environmentally-friendly, socially equitable, and economically feasible, and build diversity and inclusion in SustainRT and ALA.
The SustainRT Citation for Wellness in the Workplace acknowledges staff as the library’s most important resource, and awards meaningful investment in the people that make the library a transformative force in the lives of those we serve.
The SustainRT Diversity in Sustainability Conference Stipend recognizes the importance of social equity to SustainRT and ALA, and works to support new and diverse members to overcome barriers to participating in the professional development and networking opportunities presented by ALA conferences and events. The SustainRT Awards are administered by SustainRT’s Awards Committee.
