Inclusion, Engagement, Empowerment – Information systems can help to make or break these results. How can our research, across a range of IS specializations, help promote social inclusion across gender, ethnicity, socio-economic status, and other divides? This PDS will focus on engaging AIS members from a variety of specializations to consider how social inclusion might factor into their research. As examples, online funds transfer models, such as M-Pesa in Africa, have the impact of including more people in a broader economy, and info systems can be used to help or hinder people’s access to all sorts of things, including health care. Come join a lively discussion of active research projects across at least 10 SIGs, areas where social inclusion research may have an impact, and connect with potential research collaborations to support your studies in this area.
