Diversity Commitment

Seattle Worldcon 2025 invites the whole human community to our city to experience Pacific Northwest fan culture and to engage with our fandom community of learners, readers, doers, makers, and creators. After a 64-year gap, we want to bring the Worldcon community back to experience Seattle, and to give members of our local community who cannot travel the opportunity to learn from and create with the Worldcon community.

To accomplish the above, we are making Diversity, Inclusion, Access, and Affordability separate, yet intertwined, poles of our convention. This will come from the top down and include ongoing work to reach out to under-represented groups to join our convention and to be advisors in areas where we lack lived experience.

We acknowledge that our Worldcon is held on the unceded traditional lands of the first people of Seattle, the Duwamish people. A people that are still here, that are still creating, and that are still stewards of their land.
