Award for Initiatives in
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) 

This award seeks to recognize the federal history community’s work in furthering efforts to increase diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility across U.S. government history programs.


Nominees can be offices, working groups, or individuals. As DEIA work generally is ongoing and long-term, projects initiated within the previous three years are eligible. Projects need not be complete or have reached their endpoint, but should have demonstrable progress at the time of nomination. Initiatives addressing issues of accessibility inherent to work in historical and related professions for people with disabilities, expanding a program’s audience to previously underserved communities, prioritizing ethics in historical collections or setting up structural frameworks for prioritizing DEIA work are examples of the type of work or projects this award will highlight. 


1. Submit nomination through Google forms by January 15, 2024. 
2. Include brief letter commenting on the merits of the nominee in nomination form.

3. Include nominee(s)’s resume or curriculum vitae in nomination form.

***Please note: The award is made solely on the basis of the materials submitted.***
