Diversity and inclusion are important to SC16, are essential in the work of improvscience and are an active area of discussion, discovery and practice in computing fields.

Talks: Diversity and Inclusion—Views from the field 

How do scientists find more engaging ways to talk about their work? Can we have fun and get to know colleagues in new, productive ways?

The Cultivating Ensembles in STEM Education and Research conference will return in 2017! You can join the organizing committee for this inspirational gathering! CESTEMER brings together creative professionals from many fields, focused on but not limited to STEM disciplines. The meeting builds community, facilitates collaboration, and celebrates the role of ensembles. To learn more or express interest, please e-mail cecommittee@improvscience.org.
