Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Traveling Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Medal

The TEDIM is awarded by and to any member of the C&T community who has acted with kindness, supported a fellow conference attendee, presented a paper or raised an important point related to EDI.

We want it to travel throughout the conference and to collect as many acts of kindness as possible.

When you have the TEDIM, it is your role to find someone else to give it to! And when you hand it over, make sure you fill out a card!
