Equality and Diversity Programme for RDA Plenaries (EDPP)

The RDA aims to deliver plenaries that are truly global, culturally diverse and inclusive. To meet this goal, we are launching an Equality and Diversity Programme (EDPP) that invites RDA members to support plenary participation for those members residing in low or middle income countries (LMIC). For LMIC members, cost is often a major deterrent to participation in international conferences, including RDA plenaries. With the EDPP, we hope that through the generosity of our community, we will see increased engagement at future plenaries from LMIC members, including regions in the Southern hemisphere. 

For members who would like to support LMIC members through the purchase of registration tickets

Please note the following:

  • Cost for one LMIC ticket is $30. Tickets will be on sale until 23 May, 2024.
  • The listing of countries that qualify as LMIC are listed here.
  • Plenary organisers will allocate support tickets to LMIC members on a first-come, first-applied basis
  • LMIC members will need to apply for support to receive these tickets (“support tickets”)
  • If there are more support tickets purchased than LMIC support request applications, these tickets will be made available to to support registration for at RDA’s 23rd Plenary


To support LMIC members through the purchase of additional VP22 registration tickets, please select the “Add-on LMIC Support Ticket” during your registration.
