VSS, May 13-18

2023 VSS Inclusivity Roundtables

Saturday, May 20, 12:45 – 2:15 pm, Jasmine/Palm

The VSS conference brings together vision scientists from all over the globe with diverse life experiences, including many who have overcome or continue to face significant challenges to participating in vision science. This event will provide an opportunity to gather with those who share your background and life experiences, as well as meet and share stories with those who have followed different paths. Last year at this event we connected with Equality Florida, and discussions among event participants led to grassroots efforts, including this year’s scientific symposium, “Critical Perspectives On Vision Science”.  Participants will have the opportunity to join in roundtable discussions. VSS wants to hear about challenges our members may have faced or may continue to face. We want to hear ideas from the membership about how VSS can better serve its diverse community, and increase the participation and improve the experiences of those from groups that have been historically underrepresented in our field. 

All are invited to attend. Stop by, meet new people, and chat with a member of the board.  

Refreshments and a light lunch will be available.
