Your sponsorship enables
Expanded diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programming
Sponsor DEI efforts and enable underrepresented communities to impact the field and practice of IA. Your sponsorship empowers us to include people who otherwise could not afford to attend, such as those whose employment has been affected by COVID-19 or other circumstances.
Student scholarships for traditionally under-represented communities
IAC’s Scholarship Program has offered 30 full scholarships to people of color since 2018. Your sponsorship allows students to continue to participate in the conference. We are reaching out to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to increase student participation.
World-class programming and conversations.
As the premiere conference of information architects and user experience professionals, your sponsorship enables new speakers to join the conversation.
