#CHIversity 2023

21Apr - by Emeline - 1 - In Uncategorised

Fempower.tech is back at CHI! CHIversity aims at strengthening the feminist community in HCI and highlight research furthering diversity. We have an in-person program open to all (coffee breaks meetups! zine making! a museum visit! a non-alcoholic evening events!), and we’re online as well! You can find us on Twitter (@fempower.tech) and continue these discussions on #CHIversity. This is our tentative program – please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

You can also find all of this and our code of conduct in this shared document.

All locations for in-person events will be somewhere in the conference venue. We’ll announce those on the day via twitter and/or once we have a better idea of where there might be nice spaces for meetups at the venue!

  1. Hi! I’m so sorry to spam you but it’s my first time at CHI and I just found out about this group. It would be super cool to meet you but finding you is really hard among so many people
