Child/Family Friendly Statement

AEJMC is a Caregiver and Child Friendly Culture. The AEJMC Commission on the Status of Women has created a policy supporting this practice. Read the statement. 

Parents’ Room

The Parents’ Room is a private space for parents/caregivers to be able to attend to their child’s immediate needs including feeding and changing. There will be private individual areas within the room. 

Kidz Zone
AEJMC Kidz Zone is a dedicated space for children of all ages whose parents/caregivers are participating in the AEJMC conference. This space is available for individually arranged childcare: a sitter/nanny/service that has been hired, a family member/friend/colleague who is providing childcare, or an attendee who would like to use the space for their child/children in-between sessions and activities. This is not provided childcare, but rather a provided space for children with their caretakers. Caretaker MUST remain with the child(ren) throughout the entire time while using the Kidz Zone. You may bring your own snacks and things to do. AEJMC will provide small, individual fun packs, with assorted activities.

Sign up is required (online link available soon). This childcare space is being offered to AEJMC conference attendees free of charge.  Please note that by filling out the form you are simply letting AEJMC know that you plan to use this space for your childcare, not the services of any kind of caretaker or babysitter. After we receive your information, we will email you a confirmation of your sign up and the room location. Please do not share this location information with anyone.
