General best practices

  • Send out save-the-dates at least 90 days before the meeting so that people have time to get visas.
  • Make sure the distance between the hotel and the venue takes accessibility into account; not just for getting to the venue, but for the ability to take breaks easily.
  • Give a land acknowledgement at the beginning of the meeting to recognize indigenous peoples.
  • Ask people to make the conference a "scent-free" space.
  • Identify facilitators ahead of working sessions.
  • Make space on nametags for personal pronouns.
  • Encourage people to stay through the open days.
  • Set up a buddy system for new people a few weeks before the meeting.
