Diversity and Inclusion


IFAC Inclusion and Diversity Statement

IFAC, as an international federation serving and representing all those concerned with the theory and application of automatic control and systems engineering wherever situated, is devoted to creating and fostering an inclusive environment that is open to diverse thoughts, ideas, and communications, without fear of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation against any member of this community. It is committed to providing equal opportunities and a safe environment for every person who chooses to participate in its work. Additionally, IFAC strives for these same principles for all IFAC activities, including technical events, journals, and its various committees and governing boards.

  • IFAC actively promotes the inclusion of a diverse set of speakers, which will lead to more representative discussions across IFAC.
  • IFAC actively promotes the inclusion of a diverse set of members of its boards and committees at all levels, which will lead to more representative decisions, policies and activities across IFAC.
