This article discusses the diversity[1], equity, and inclusion (DEI) implications of different conference formats. It also presents implications for a closely related factor – the sense of belonging to AIS as experienced by members of different regions. It offers suggestions that go beyond these models and how they may address DEI concerns.

[1]Diversity here refers to not only the visible characteristics such as race, gender, or age, but also to invisible characteristics of culture, background, or nationality.





When commenting on articles, please be friendly, welcoming, respectful and abide by the AIS eLibrary Discussion Thread Code of Conduct posted here.
