Visualization plays an important role in all levels of scholarship, and across interdisciplinary, research and social landscapes. It is imperative that the importance and benefits of a field with such far reaching impact embrace the diverse demographic of the future workforce for whom data visualization skills will be needed if not required. In order to meet the growing demand for persons with capacity to utilize data visualization to solve complex problems in research and in the workforce exposure to data visualization at all levels is essential. This workshop aims to be a catalyst for broadening participation of women, members of underrepresented groups and underrepresented disciplines in visualization, fostering a community of current and future scholars with interests in visualization through mentoring and encouraging participants to consider visualization as a career path. The workshop is designed to inform, inspire and encourage participants, specifically participants historically underrepresented at the conference, to engage in the multidisciplinary dynamics of visualization.

Travel expenses (flight or mileage), meals and lodging costs will be provided for a limited number of workshop participants to support the participation of underrepresented undergraduate students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), Minority Serving Institutions (MSI), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI), Tribal Colleges, and 2-year institutions and community colleges.
