We're delighted to bring PLTea to PLDI. Drop in, meet the PLTea moderators and other attendees, and then chat in randomly assigned breakout rooms that are shuffled every 10 minutes. Join any time, and stay for just a couple minutes or as long as you like. All welcome!
CARES: Building Inclusive Research Environments
Vikram Adve, Shriram Krishnamurthi, Kathryn McKinley, Alexandra Silva, Michelle Strout, David Walker, Stephanie Weirich, Peng Wu, Hongseok Yang
Please join SIGPLAN CARES community members at the following two time zone inclusive sessions at PLDI 2021 and prepare by filling out this short survey intended to provoke reflection on how you experience inclusion at your home institution and at conferences. At these sessions, SIGPLAN CARES committee members will lead an exploration of how you experience inclusion in your everyday environment and at research conferences, and ways individuals and institutions can work to make them more inclusive. The survey will inform our discussion, so please take it.
