Commitment to accessibility

Commitment to accessibility

The Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences is committed to creating a more accessible, equitable, inclusive, and decolonized Congress experience for all attendees. 

We strive to embed accessibility into each aspect of Congress planning, and we are working to ensure Congress is inclusive to all members of our humanities and social sciences community, including those with disabilities. 

Advancing accessibility at Congress will require the contribution of all attendees – whether you’re organizing an association conference, presenting your research, or attending an event. 

Equity, diversity, inclusion, and decolonization (EDID) 

We are in the process of consulting with our community partners, in keeping with the recommendations of the “Igniting Change” report, to advance accessibility at Congress. If you’d like to be a part of this consultation process, contact us at
