Volunteer Spotlight

SIGCHI relies on the contributions of volunteers in order to achieve its mission. The Volunteer Spotlight serves to profile some of the many volunteers who donate their time to SIGCHI.

SIGCHI Ambassadors

SIGCHI Ambassadors are volunteers from around the world who spread the word about SIGCHI’s mission and members’ activities across the globe. They regularly provide content on what is going on in a specific part of the world, share exciting news by translating them from the local language to English, so it can be shared on a global scale through the SIGCHI social media channels.

There are currently 31 active SIGCHI Ambassadors. Six ambassadors will be profiled in each spotlight.
