Queer in AI Workshop

Arjun Subramonian, Sharvani Jha, Vishakha Agrawal, Umut Pajaro Velasquez, MaryLena Bleile, Michelle Julia Ng

Abstract:

Queer in AI’s demographic survey reveals that most queer scientists in our community do not feel completely welcome in conferences and their work environments, with the main reasons being a lack of queer community and role models. Over the past years, Queer in AI has worked towards these goals, yet we have observed that the voices of marginalized queer communities - especially transgender, non-binary folks and queer BIPOC folks - have been neglected. The purpose of this workshop is to highlight issues that these communities face by featuring talks and panel discussions on the inclusion of non-Western non-binary identities; and Black, Indigenous, and Pacific Islander non-cis folks.

Chat is not available.
