Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at the PEARC Conference

PEARC is committed to making our conference an inclusive, diverse, equitable, and accessible experience for all attendees. PEARC’s commitment to diversity and inclusivity extends to every aspect of planning for the event, and we are committed to promoting a sense of belonging and providing a safe and inclusive environment for everyone. 

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts and activities at the PEARC conference have been built on a solid foundation of contributions from past and present DEI Chairs as well as a solid commitment to DEI from the PEARC Steering Committee, past and present General Co-Chairs, and ACM.
