The Games Institute is organizing this event in collaboration with the Research, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (REDI) Council and the Council for Responsible Innovation and Technology (CRIT). Together, we are launching UW’s first ever Racial Equity Board Game Showcase, under the guidance of University of Waterloo’s Office of Research and with consultation from the Equity Office. This panel aims to inspire submissions and set expectations for the showcase, which will officially open Winter, 2021.
