November 3rd-7th, 2018 : New York City's Hudson River (Jersey City)
Diversity & Inclusion Lunch

CSCW will be hosting the diversity and inclusion lunch on Monday 12:30-2:30 at the conference hotel. During lunch we will celebrate papers recognized for their efforts to serve under-represented and marginalized communities and hear from a panel of experts on the topic. Due to limited space, please register for the raffle if you would like to join.

The Diversity and Inclusion Lunch at ACM CSCW 2018 will bring together participants at CSCW 2018 to discuss the topic of inclusion both for conference participants and in research presented at the conference. Diversity lunches are common at ACM conferences such as CHI and serve as an effective way to raise awareness and build community around this important issue.

The lunch will include a panel of speakers to discuss relevant issues around diversity and inclusion in technology development and usage. During this event the diversity and inclusion co-chairs will award 5 “Recognitions for Contribution to Diversity and Inclusion” to authors of top papers within the conference, recognizing their efforts to promote inclusion by studying or serving an underrepresented minority.
