Inclusive Event Guidelines

After 2 years of consultation, we have developed draft Inclusive Event Guidelines for philosophy events of all kinds.

The aim is that this document will show organisers of academic philosophy events what concrete steps they can take to make their events more inclusive. The current draft has been developed on the basis of feedback from the MAP UK network and public consultation with the wider academic community.

Please use these guidelines to improve your events and help with accessibility across your academic work. Scroll down for the table of contents for our online guide or download the PDF.
