Frequently asked questions:
- Would you like to
give a talk/tutorial at my workshop/conference/department/lab?
In general, I am honored to be invited to give talks, and especially
enjoy meeting new people and discussing research.
I am, however, unwilling to do
so in a way that contributes to the further marginalization of women,
people of color, people with disabilities, and other amazing members
of our disciplines whose voices are often drowned out.
For instance, I decline invitations for:
events with all male organizers;
workshops/panels with non-diverse speakers/panelists;
talk series whose past speakers are non-diverse.
But I will also try to assist.
If you invite me and I decline, I will provide a list of alternate
invitees you might consider (adapted for the topic of interest); or
you can just email me for suggestions.
Also check out
the WiML Directory,
the Black in AI workshop, and
the WiNLP Spotlights.
This won't necessarily solve everything, and making process here is
hard: I think it's important to keep in
mind that service overload is a real thing for members of
underrepresented groups, and we all need to find a way to
balance priorities and what they ask for.
I'd like us, as a community, to get to the point where having such
"rules" is unnecessary, in which all researchers are valued equally
for their contributions, and hopefully we can get there.
I am partly taking a firm stance here because I am guilty in the past
of not paying enough attention to these issues, and have organized my
share of, e.g., all-male panels; I believe we can make the most
progress when we all hold each other accountable. I'm writing this in
part to hold myself accountable.
If you're trying to find other ways to help, please consider the list
of suggestions from Kathryn McKinley on ACM SIGARCH.
