WebMedia for Everyone (W4E) is a forum for discussion about how the WebMedia community could better incorporate diversity in various perspectives, including research and outreach projects.
At the international level, SIGMM has recently created the role of Director of Diversity and Outreach to actively drive and develop diversity support actions, as well as information and service dissemination efforts.
From WebMedia4Everyone, we will start a national initiative to support these actions. In 2022, we will invite researchers and industry members to a discussion.
Access to WebMedia for Everyone will be free of charge, i.e. it is not linked to WebMedia membership. The event will take place on 09/Nov, at 4pm, at the UTFPR Curitiba campus. Follow our social networks for more information!
