Accessibility

If you need further information or further support, please get in touch. It is important to us to make it possible for you to participate in Activate Summit fully, and we will do our best to accommodate all requests as is possible within our constraints. 

We are a small team: please request any accessibility needs at least 24 hours before the conference (by 9am Tuesday, June 22nd) to give us the best possible chance to support you!

Technology

Activate Summit will be hosted primarily on Zoom. One optional session (Thursday, June 24th 4:00-5:00pm) will be held on Gather.town. 

You can find details about the accessibility features of each platform here:

Zoom Accessibility: https://zoom.us/accessibility/faq#faq5 
Gather.town Accessibility: https://support.gather.town/help/accessibility

All sessions on Zoom will use CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation, a speech-to-text interpreting service).

The agenda is designed to support you in taking what you need and taking care of yourself.

We know 2.5 full days can be a lot, for a lot of reasons: your energy, health, childcare and other work obligations, and more. Keynotes and workshops will be recorded for you to watch later.

Sessions range from 1.5 to 2 hours, with regular 15 minute breaks and 1 hour for lunch each day.

 

Connecting Online

There will be many opportunities for engagement and connection. You can choose what feels comfortable and possible for you and how to participate, including whether to have your camera on or off. If you are comfortable and able, we would love to be able to connect with video on for portions of the event. 

Optional opportunities to engage may include icebreaker questions like: 

Please share your name, your pronouns, and something that’s giving you joy or hope right now.

Where is a place you would go right now if you could go anywhere? Or where is a place you love?
