Diversity and Inclusion
SLA welcomes all attendees to the Annual Conference. Our members, both new and seasoned, came together to develop new skills and hear fresh perspectives from peers in diverse industries – more than 622 different organizations and institutions were represented. Seeing longtime digital colleagues in person contributes to the connectedness that is very present in our vibrant SLA community.
SLA promotes diversity, inclusion, community, and equity in association activities and is committed to making the annual conference accessible to all. We were proud to hold several sessions focused on diversity, including the closing keynote, which focused on Racial and Sexual Bias in Digital Media. To support gender identity equity, SLA provided personal pronouns ribbons which attendees could attach to their badges and made available gender neutral bathrooms. Also provided were a prayer room and nursing pods, and children were welcome on the tradeshow floor.
If you are an SLA member, we encourage you to participate in the Diversity, Inclusion, Community, Equity (DICE) Caucus.
