That’s really good to know – I will probably be attending AERA next year, so its good to know that.
We also need to take international attendees into consideration. Are we creating childcare that is ready for language barriers, differing cultural norms, dietary requirements, religious respect, etc? My wife is half-Indian, and I have heard many racist comments about India at conferences. So are the conferences also creating Codes of Conduct and then making them major components of the conference? And are the childcare providers agreeing to those codes and conducting their services accordingly? All big questions to consider.
