Help us great a welcoming space

We want to welcome everyone to the Symposium. We strive to create an environment that is welcoming, safe, collaborative, supportive, and productive for all attendees.

You can help by coming “fragrance-free” to the Symposium. Avoid using laundry detergent and softeners, shampoo, soap, cologne, perfume, aftershave, deodorant, lotions, and essential oils that are scented. Some people are harmed by a variety of common chemicals and fragrances. Due to allergies, asthma or other chemical sensitivities they may have difficulty breathing, get migraine headaches, experience flu-like symptoms, and more. 

The CSU East Bay Concord campus has both single-stall restrooms, and multi-stall, single-sex restrooms. Please remember that everyone has the right to use the restroom in accordance with their gender identity.

Statement of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion:

Cal-IPC is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion. We are promoting a Symposium environment that is welcoming, safe, collaborative, supportive, and productive for all attendees. We value our diverse perspectives, expertise, opinions, backgrounds, and life experiences, and understand that this collective diversity is essential to meeting our mission and to this event. It is expected that we all uphold this commitment by practicing the following:

  • Treat everyone with respect and consideration (including using pronouns if indicated on nametag). Communicate openly and thoughtfully and be considerate and curious of multiple views and opinions that may differ from our own.
  • Acknowledge our intentions. Take responsibility and address the impact of our words and actions.
  • Be mindful of our fellow participants. Alert Cal-IPC staff if we notice a potentially troubling or dangerous situation, someone in distress, or unacceptable behavior.

Online, November 1-3

We are once again gathering online using the Whova App. If you attended either of the online gatherings in 2020 or 2021, you will be able to use the same login to access this year’s content (with registration to the 2022 Cal-IPC Symposium Online). Links to the Whova platform and online program will be updated once they are available.
