*Some more information on iDiversity: *
iDiversity is open to all graduate students in the iSchool. Our mission is
to promote awareness of inclusivity, diversity, and accessibility within
the information professions. This takes the form of workshops, reading
groups, community projects, and fundraisers/drives. Students interested in
social justice and activism are encouraged to join us. If you are an online
student or can't make our in-person meetings for whatever reason, you are
still more than welcome to join us--we have several projects that can be
completed entirely online, and we are happy to arrange virtual meetings via
google hangout or skype.

If you have any questions about iDiversity or our meeting schedule, please
don't hesitate to be in touch. Looking forward to seeing many of you soon!
