The ACM SIGGRAPH Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Committee promotes DEI and access. Diversity makes us more innovative and creative, and it leads to better decision-making, among all other positive impacts. We are committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming space that celebrates diversity of people and content across all communities.

The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit, hosted each year at SIGGRAPH since 2018, aims to turn the spotlight on how diversity, equity, and inclusion makes our communities, our industries, and our teams stronger and how we can make our world more inclusive and accessible.

We invite you to share your content (e.g., talks, panels) related to DEI and access at the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit. We would love to see submissions addressing, but not limited to:

  • DEI Tech (e.g., VR, etc.)
  • Disability, inclusion, and accessibility
  • Employee activism and workers’ rights
  • Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
  • Education (fostering DEI in education)
  • Gaming/interactivity
  • The power of reflecting DEI in animation and/or storytelling
  • Global diversity practices
  • Inclusion of caregivers in the workplace
  • Legal agreements (e.g., arbitration clauses)
  • Mental health in the workplace

We value a diversity of speakers. We believe that representation matters and that there are significant benefits from hearing about diverse experiences and perspectives. We prioritize submissions with the participation of speakers from underrepresented backgrounds in computer graphics. We also welcome content sharing about intersectionality and or from people with intersectional experiences and identities.
