Recommendations for Inclusion

The History of Science Society is committed to hosting meetings that minimize barriers to participation by all attendees. To this end, Jaipreet Virdi (University of Delaware) has created a set of recommendations for making meetings more inclusive.

These recommendations, though not comprehensive, do provide concrete suggestions as well as an opportunity for further discussion in our community.
