Equity Talk #10: Race & SIGCHI will be held Tuesday, August 10, at 5pm UTC (in your time zone). You can participate on Discord, pose questions on Sli.do before/during, or join us on Zoom. The session will be co-led by Ihudiya Finda Williams, Adriana Alvarado, Marisol Wong-Villacres, Bryan Dosono, and Angela Smith. Please read their message below:
“To ensure multiple perspectives are shared for this discussion, we are opening our Sli.do early to hear and understand the feedback of the community in relation to the topic of race and ethnicity. Overall, we are interested in learning:
- What are the pressing problems or issues that people see as it relates to race and SIGCHI?
- What are recommendations for policy changes as it relates to race and SIGCHI?
We will review and curate feedback prior to and during the session in relation to policy changes for the SIGCHI EC that recognize and address issues of race and ethnicity in SIGCHI.
We invite individuals who have been affected by race and ethnicity within the broader HCI community, those with expertise on race and ethnicity, individuals who have a commitment to diversity as it relates to race and ethnicity, and members of the community who are conducting research in the area of race and ethnicity to attend this event.
Post this conversation we will share a summary of the recorded session with the broader community in a medium post. Our hope is to offer a space for the SIGCHI community to continue the discussion on actions leading to important changes regarding this topic.
