The Gender Odyssey Planning Committee is continuously working to make Gender Odyssey more affordable and accessible for conference attendees facing financial challenges. We acknowledge that traveling is expensive; even our negotiated group rates at certain hotels are out of reach for some people.
In 2017, we introduced the GO Community Housing program at the Seattle conference. This project aims to identify local families, individuals, and organizations in the conference area who are willing to open their accommodations to low-income conference attendees. Gender Odyssey is grateful for the generous hospitality of the local families for holding space for those who might otherwise be unable to attend these life-changing events.
