It is vitally important to include scholars from underrepresented groups such as activists, practitioners, and those coming from the Global South with limited means at a conference like SCORAI. There has been widespread acknowledgement across arenas that bringing marginalized voices into these conversations can not only advance social justice, but could lead to new insights and innovative outcomes. This conference, and SCORAI more generally, will benefit greatly from actively recruiting these voices, and finding out what possibilities lay ahead with their inclusion.

To donate to the fund for reduced conference admission for SCORAI members from underrepresented groups and the Global South please follow this link.
