Diversity and inclusion have become buzzwords in the field of archival science, whether in developing collections, supporting graduate students, or providing outreach. Less has been said about the lived experiences of the representatives of "diversity" in our profession itself. Archivists from marginalized communities often end up standing as representatives for a broader whole in ways that make navigating the profession more complex and challenging than it is for others. This forum, sponsored by SAA’s Diversity Committee, features panelists who are established archivists from a variety of backgrounds and identities who explore and explain the personal and structural state of "inclusive" archives.
