Library and information science (LIS) has some amazing scholars of colors in the professoriate, and in order to keep them and recruit more, LIS needs to have more purposeful and consistent conversations about allyship and mentorship (Cooke and Sánchez, 2019). This panel features faculty of color and white allies in conversation about the current state and future of the LIS professoriate for diverse faculty members and doctoral students. Cooke, N. A., & Sánchez, J. O. (2019). Getting it on the Record: Faculty of Color in Library and Information Science. Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, 60(3), 169-181.
