The CRA-Industry Committee invites you to attend the Virtual Roundtable on Corporate Responsibility and Computing Research

Discussion
Today, more companies are deliberately extending their social responsibility initiatives at the behest of investors, customers, and employees. How should industry be viewing and factoring societal equity into its research agendas? This roundtable will explore the concept, principles, and best practices of socially responsible computing research. Ideally, participants will gain a sense of considerations that might apply to their strategic research planning by developing a broad framework for the concept of research equity that goes beyond recent examples in machine learning.

About the CRA-Industry Committee
CRA-Industry, a standing committee of the Computing Research Association (CRA), was created in the Fall of 2020 with the goal of reaching out to industry partners involved in computing research and giving them new opportunities to convene and connect on topics of mutual interest.  The committee also facilitates the interaction between industry partners and other organizations deeply involved in computing research, including academic institutions and government agencies.

You can learn more about CRA-Industry by visiting our web page and/or signing up for our mailing list.
