Evaggelia Pitoura (one of the founding members of the Greek ACM-W chapter) delivered the Diversity and Inclusion talk at EDBT 2022, the premium European conference in data management.  

Dr Pitoura talked about fairness in graphs and specifically about centrality fairness as measured by Pagerank. Important question addressed in the talk include. What are the conditions that may lead to a situation in which the nodes of the minority group hold less important positions in the network? Can we modify Pagerank towards a fair assignment of ranks to all groups of nodes? Can we improve the fairness of the network itself by appropriate link recommendations? She also discussed promising research directions for fairness in the context of both graph and relational data.
