Diversity and Inclusion
IEEE Computer Society's statement on Diversity & Inclusion.

Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) are central to the goals of the IEEE Computer Society and all of its activities. Equity at its heart is about removing barriers, biases, and obstacles that impede equal access and opportunity to succeed. Diversity is fundamentally about valuing human differences and recognizing diverse talents. Inclusion is the active engagement of Diversity and Equity.

A goal of the IEEE Computer Society is to foster an environment in which all individuals are entitled to participate in any IEEE Computer Society activity free of discrimination. For this reason, the IEEE Computer Society is firmly committed to team compositions in all sponsored activities, including but not limited to, technical committees, steering committees, conference organizations, standards committees, and ad hoc committees that display Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.



The IEEE Computer Society Condemns Racism and Discrimination


The IEEE Computer Society is, and remains, strongly committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion and we see no place for hatred and discrimination in our communities. Equity, diversity, and inclusion are central to the goals of the Computer Society and all of our activities. We are proactively supporting diversity and inclusion with the creation of a new taskforce this year that will address ways the Computer Society can improve its mission to better serve those most under-represented in our community. However, we know there is more we can do to support these ideals of equity, diversity, and inclusion.

We are ready to listen. Please send your suggestions to inclusion@computer.org and your comments will be shared with Computer Society leadership and the Computer Society Diversity & Inclusion Task Force.
