Dear colleagues,

as early bird registration for CHI is coming closer, we want to inform 
you about the possibility to attend the Diversity & Inclusion Lunch.

The CHI 2016 conference will host its first Diversity and Inclusion 
Lunch. Building upon the tradition of ‘CHI Women’s Breakfast’ at 
previous conferences, this lunch is both an expansion of scope and 
deepening of engagement with multiple aspects of diversity and 
inclusion. These issues include but are not limited to race, ethnicity 
and culture; age and professional experience; gender identity and sexual 
orientation; (dis)ability and impairments; religious beliefs; 
work-life-balance and needs of parents.

This lunch is intended as a social-peer platform to celebrate diversity, 
discuss challenges, and collaborate on strategies to bolster diversity 
and inclusion in the CHI community. During the lunch, a list of select 
speakers will share their personal views and life experiences on 
specific issues. These talks will highlight everyday challenges and 
strategies and serve as prompts for table discussions among lunch 
attendees. Attendees will then be invited to discuss related issues in 
lunch table groups.

Important Details

  * Lunch Buffet with several options (including vegetarians)
  * $15 for students / $30 for others
  * Only 500 seats are available for this special lunch program so
