Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) has a growing body of work regarding important social and community issues, as well as various growing grassroots communities working to make CHI more international and inclusive.
By attending this workshop, participants will build on this work: First – by reflecting on the contemporary CHI climate, and then through developing an actionable plan towards making CHI2019 and subsequent SIGCHI events more inclusive for all.
