Double Your Impact to Build A More Inclusive LITA

LITA Blog - Tue, 2017-11-28 19:03

Last year we ran our first ever campaigns specifically to raise money to sponsor more diversity in LITA leadership through an additional ALA Emerging Leader, 11 participants in our first AvramCamp for female-identifying individuals, and 6 new attendees at the LITA Forum.

This year, we’re asking you to help continue this investment in future library IT leaders by contributing to #GiveLITA. Even better, this year any amount you donate will be automatically be matched so that you double your impact. Together, we can sponsor twice the number of scholarship recipients to support a continued focus on diversity in library technology positions.

Every LITA Board and staff member has donated, because we believe so strongly in this goal. Donate today to work with us invest in a more inclusive future for our profession.
