SPIE believes in the development of collaborative environments that value participation from individuals with different ideas and perspectives, which ultimately have a positive impact on the science of light. Our programs reflect these core values. At our events, we aim to provide resources, guidance, and education to build a more inclusive optics and photonics experience for all our attendees.
