      Google is working to understand the opportunities and challenges in the D&I space across a variety of teams. CEPIC represents several entities who have similar interests, to deliver more diverse content. Therefore the CEPIC congress offers a unique opportunity to explore these challenges openly.
At last year’s CEPIC congress, we hosted a panel discussion regarding D&I efforts within the ecosystem. One of the goals of this panel was to represent the challenges in bringing more
diverse content online by showcasing the full lifecycle of an image from creation to search display, and all of the touch points in between.
This panel was well received, but we have determined that we merely scratched the surface within an hour’s time. Therefore in 2023, we decided to devote half a day to this subject-matter.
      In the FITZGERALD Room, 3rd Floor
      Anna Dickson of Google will introduce our Panel to explore today’s themes from unique perspectives
      Each presentation will be followed by a 5-10 minutes Q&A. All speakers will come together at the last session.
