By the EADI-ISS Conference Team
When we think of social justice, we often think of working towards it through academic research and development practice. But what if conferences themselves can also help further social justice? The EADI ISS Conference that’s taking place between 5 and 8 July 2021 is an excellent example of the extent to which the reshaping of conferences can change who is involved in the conversation and what is being discussed. We never expected this to work so amazingly, but it did. And we are in agreement that all conferences should be held online at least in part to bring scientific knowledge closer to society and further inclusion.
