IEEE Computer Society Open Conference Statement
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are central to the goals of the IEEE Computer Society
and all of its conferences. Equity at its heart is about removing barriers, biases, and
obstacles that impede equal access and opportunity to succeed. Diversity is
fundamentally about valuing human differences and recognizing diverse talents.
Inclusion is the active engagement of Diversity and Equity.
A goal of the IEEE Computer Society is to foster an environment in which all individuals
are entitled to participate in any IEEE Computer Society activity free of discrimination.
For this reason, the IEEE Computer Society is firmly committed to team compositions in
all sponsored activities, including but not limited to, technical committees, steering
committees, conference organizations, standards committees, and ad hoc committees
that display Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
