Registration is now open for the second inroads Global Member Gathering in Zagreb, Croatia on March 12-16, 2018. Learning from member input and experiences with past meetings, we designed a slightly different process for registering and for applying for financial support. You can register, apply for support, and submit an abstract in this one form.
What is an inroads Global Member gathering? Participants can look forward to a participatory, interactive, five-day gathering in Zagreb. Past gatherings have been described as abortion and activist “camp” and as valuable spaces to connect with new and familiar colleagues. Participants have shared that while they usually count on being able to take naps at global conferences, at inroads events, there’s no time to be drowsy or jet-lagged because there is always something interesting happening. We expect to have participants from many countries and all regions of the world joining together to connect and learn from one another throughout the course of the five days we’ll spend together. To get a sense of what inroads meetings are like, you can check out our blogpost about the first inroads Global Member Gathering in Bangkok, Thailand in 2016.
What information do you need to be able to fill out this form? Before you complete the registration and application form, please make sure you have joined the network and gather the following information:
*NEW THIS YEAR* We also have an option for submitting an abstract for consideration. If you would like to submit an abstract, be prepared with a title, author, and brief abstract in your format. Abstracts should relate directly to reducing or understanding stigma. Abstract/application acceptance letters will be sent by December 22, 2017.
A note on language: inroads member gatherings are participatory events with large and small group interactions. For this inroads Global Member Gathering, we will conduct activities and prepare content in English. Please note that the meeting registration form asks you about your translation needs. Please fill that out, and will follow-up individually about possibilities to meet your translation needs.
