Equality and Diversity Programme for RDA Plenaries

In alignment with the RDA’s goal to deliver plenaries that are truly global, culturally diverse and inclusive, the RDA is excited to announce the launch of the Equality and Diversity Programme for Plenaries (EDPP) that invites RDA members to support plenary participation for those members residing in low or middle income countries (LMIC). For LMIC members, cost is often a major deterrent to participation in international conferences, including RDA plenaries. With the EDPP, we hope that through the generosity of our community, we will see increased engagement at future plenaries from LMIC members, including regions in the Southern hemisphere.
