Birds of a Feather
Diversity Equity Inclusion (DEI)
TimeWednesday, 17 November 202112:15pm - 1:15pm CST
DescriptionMany projects and organizations active in advanced research computing are becoming aware of the need to ensure that the language they use both formally and informally is free from terminology that prevents the fostering of environments inclusive for all community members. This applies to documentation, presentations, educational materials, and workplace language. In 2020, the Extreme Science Engineering and Discovery Environment (XSEDE) project started addressing these concerns by forming a Terminology Task Force (TTF). Presentations by the XSEDE TTF and other invited groups will briefly review their progress to stimulate discussion and exchange of best practices among interested SC21 participants.
