Building Inclusive Spaces & Community Agreements

We are committed to ensuring that our conference models an inclusive environment for learning, growing and connecting together. If there are supports we can provide to help ensure you are able to fully access the conference and engage with your peers, we invite you to let us know via the registration form or reach out to our conference support team. 

Here’s a look at some of our efforts to enhance your 2024 conference experience: 

  • Community Agreements: We ask all attendees to honor our community agreements for how we will interact and engage together.

  • Deaf and Hard of Hearing (HOH) Access: CMF is planning to provide closed captioning for all main stage events. 

  • Stage Access: The main stage will be equipped with a ramp for more inclusive access, in addition to the staircase.

  • Dietary Restrictions: CMF works with participants to provide meals that align with their individual dietary needs. If you have any dietary restrictions, you will be invited to include them on your conference registration form.  

  • Reflection Space: We're holding space in the conference area of the hotel for those who may need a quiet moment, a place you can step out of the conference for reflection. These spaces will be marked on the hotel map within the conference app and will be available to use throughout the conference.  

  • Nursing Suite: We are working with the conference hotel to designate a private room for nursing that will be equipped with a locking door, comfortable seating and refrigeration. Information regarding the suite location and its access will be included in the conference mobile app. 

  • Gender Inclusive Restroom: We will have designated gender inclusive restrooms. Information regarding their location will be included in the conference mobile app.
