The National Library of Medicine (NLM) and Association of Academic Health Sciences Library (AAHSL) are pleased to announce the opening of applications for the 2021/2022 Leadership Fellows Program. The Leadership Fellows Program recognizes and values the importance of diversity and inclusion in enriching and supporting academic health sciences libraries’ mission and actively seeks applications from individuals with varying identities and backgrounds.

The deadline to apply is Tuesday, June 15. Please see the application for additional information.

With that in mind, we invite you to attend a panel discussion featuring five librarians who completed the Leadership Fellows Program and who are also from racially and ethnically diverse backgrounds. Panelists will share their experiences from applying to participating to the impact on their career post-fellowship. Our panelists include Tara Douglas-Williams, Shannon Jones, Jean Song, Philip Walker, and Hongjie Wang.

Please join us for this discussion as you consider applying for the NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellow Program. The discussion will take place on Tuesday, May 4, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CDT. To register, please go here.
