Diversity

Speaker panel
At Joint Futures, we personally curate part of the line-up and the rest of the speakers are sourced through an open Call-For-Proposals. We are looking for a wide range of perspectives, not limited to race and gender but also to people's experiences and expertise, knowledge and even different opinions as long as they are following our guidelines.

Inclusion

Scholarships
We do have a limited amount of scholarships that we are going to give out to the community. If you consider yourself eligible for that, please reach out to us at hello@jointfuturesconf.com and we will take it from there

Badges
We will have two different colors of lanyards that you can choose and indicate your choice to the video recording staff and photographers:
- Do not take a photograph or video of me 
- Ok to take a photograph or video of me 

We will also have stickers with different pronoun choises for everyone at Joint Futures. We would kindly ask everyone to choose their own.

Event Space
Joint Futures is dedicated to a harassment-free conference experience for everyone. Our anti-harassment policy can be found at the Code of Conduct page

Accessibility

Venue

The event producers are responsible for accessibility with a wheelchair as well as entrance routes. It is possible to reserve special seating if required. Service animals are allowed.

All talks will have live captioning which will be available for the video recordings and live-stream as well.
