    Ever read an interesting article, or hear a great podcast on diversity, and get a seed of an idea for how that spark can apply to diversity issues in LIS?  Maybe there is a session you thought SLA should have on Inclusion at the annual conference, but you have yet to see it.  Maybe you want to put your energies behind some issues of equity in our field but haven't found a good collaborator for it yet.
    SLA's Diversity Inclusion Community Equity (DICE) Caucus is hosting a session at the annual conference in Cleveland that might be right for you.
     
    "DICE Incubator: Test drive your idea." The idea behind this session is for folks to present their ideas for future social justice-oriented sessions - either at SLA 2020, or another venue (eg, a webinar, chapter workshop, etc.). Folks can present their ideas in an informal, non-judgmental setting, and get feedback, critique and support from whoever is present. Folks can also use the session to find partners for their proposals. 
     
    We would like to invite YOU to attend this session (currently scheduled for Monday, June 17, 2019, 10:45am - 11:45am listed under Concurrent Sessions #5).
    Give feedback, share past experiences, find that new project that you didn't even know you could get off the ground, or just share your support of the issues of Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice in our profession.
    Let's hear your voice.
