The Connections Workshop will welcome participants of all genders and identities, with the scope of fostering a sense of community, amplifying voices of those who identify as women, and providing avenues to allies to be helpful. The workshop particularly aims to increase visibility among junior women in fields adjacent to the topics of the general program, including but not limited to game-theoretic fairness, mechanism design, partition, networks, redistricting, and fairness in machine learning. This two-day workshop will include keynote speakers, lightning talks from participants, panel discussions on career advancement, breakout sessions by research areas, opportunities for networking, and other mentoring activities.
