Accessibility at Render Conf
We’re committed to improving accessibility at Render. We know there’s always more we could do, and we’d love to hear your comments and ideas. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you don’t see what you need here:
Code of Conduct
Render is a friendly conference where everyone should feel welcome, safe and comfortable to share ideas and engage in open discussion without threat of intimidation or public embarrassment. We expect all delegates, speakers, organisers and staff to be respectful to one another in person and on social media, and to adhere to our Code of Conduct. We are committed to taking swift and appropriate action in the event of a violation of this code.
In an effort to open up the conference and make it accessible to people who might not otherwise be able to attend, we’ve again allocated a number of scholarship tickets. These free places will be awarded to individuals from underrepresented groups in tech or those facing economic and social hardship, and successful applicants will receive access to all content across both days, food, drink and all the extras. In some cases, we are able to cover travel and accommodation expenses. See our blog post for more details and to apply.
Our conference and workshop venue, The King’s Centre, is fully accessible to wheelchair users and offers 2 disabled parking bays, ramped access at all entrances/exits and throughout the ground floor of the building.
Service animals such as guide dogs are welcome at the conference. We are able to provide complimentary tickets to assistants of those with disabilities, for example sign language interpreters.
Please contact us if you have any access requirements you’d like to discuss. We will do our best to accommodate them, and we’ll be happy to reserve you a ticket if it’s not immediately clear whether we’re able to provide the assistance you need.
Live captioning and hearing loop
The lecture hall is fitted with a Hearing Loop and the venue is able to provide a portable hearing loop for individuals using other rooms. We will also be providing real-time captioning in English for all talks. This will be displayed on screens at the front of the auditorium, and attendees will have access to a link that can be viewed and customised in the browser on their personal device.
There will be a vegetarian option available as standard during lunch. We are able to cater for more specific requirements (such as gluten free, allergies, Kosher, Halal, vegan as so on) with advance notice. We ask all attendees to let us know about any special dietary requirements at the point of registration.
