This Town Hall is meant to introduce the recently formed AES Diversity and Inclusion Committee and give AES members a chance to have a meaningful discussion about the committee's purpose. The committee has stated a number of goals intended to strengthen the AES as a whole:
• To work towards a membership of the AES that will best reflect the demographics of working audio professionals.
• To increase AES membership and broader participation in the audio industry by helping the Society become more diverse and inclusive.
These efforts will include women and other underrepresented groups, as well as students and young audio professionals working in newer music genres and/or audio fields.
