DICE

About

The Special Libraries Association (SLA) Diversity & Inclusion Task Force (D&ITF) was tasked with a one-year appointment from January to December 2017 by the 2017 (then) President Dee Magnoni to research diversity and inclusion in SLA in an effort to identify concrete steps for the association and the profession to progress forward. Our charge includes making recommendations to the Board to develop recommended internal procedures and proposed structure of a committee(s), or other outcome, that will provide focus to diversity and inclusion initiatives for the association.

The Diversity Inclusion Community Equity (DICE) Caucus is one outcome of the D&ITF. The SLA Board approved the caucus be open to all SLA members without an additional fee.

Please visit the SLA Connect community to read the D&ITF’s final report to the SLA Board with all its numerous recommendations, presented to the Board in late 2017, as well as a report on a survey sent to all SLA unit leaders in early 2017. In addition, Connect will house a repository of tools and other resources that SLA units can use to assist in their inclusion efforts. We welcome your input!

SLA President Roberto Sarmiento
