Opening the Clubhouse Doors: Creating More Inclusive Geek Communities
Date: Friday, April 25
As visibility of fans, creators and organizers from marginalized communities increases, geek communities are having more discussions about diversity, tokenism and re-examining just how welcoming geek spaces are. This moderated panel will discuss what diversity in geek culture means, what it looks like, and why its necessary. Panel sponsored in part by the Chicago Nerd Social Club.
