The 4th Advancing Diversity in EDA (DivEDA) forum aims to support women and underrepresented minorities (URM) in advancing their careers in academia and industry, fostering diversity within the EDA community. A diverse community is pivotal in accelerating innovation within the EDA ecosystem, ultimately contributing to societal progress. Through an interactive environment, DivEDA seeks to offer practical advice for women and URM to navigate career obstacles, while also facilitating connections between senior and junior researchers to foster a more inclusive community. This initiative builds upon previous diversity-focused efforts within the EDA field, with prior editions of DivEDA held at DATE’18, DAC’19, and DATE’22. This year's forum, embedded into the DATE program, will feature a panel and discussion addressing topics such as tokenism, barriers to entry, and strategies for addressing bias within the EDA community. DivEDA has been supported by IEEE CEDA and ACM SIGDA.
