SPIE Diversity and Inclusion

Our Mission

SPIE, its volunteers, and staff work to encourage and promote diversity at our events and within our profession. We believe that bringing together people from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives will support innovation through a diversity of ideas, and solve challenges faced by our world. We also believe in the development of collaborative environments that value participation from individuals with different ideas and perspectives, that ultimately have a positive impact on the science of light. It is our aim that our programs reflect these core values.
