Amnesty International is committed to the IDEA principles of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Accessibility.


  • Inclusion: We support an inclusive culture where everyone belongs in the movement for human rights and feels they can be fully involved with the identities they choose to share.
  • Diversity: We work to diversify Member Leadership & develop our staff and members.
  • Equity: We work towards reducing inequalities and barriers that result from discrimination based on identity dimensions.
  • Accessibility: We will listen, understand, dismantle barriers and ensure equitable access to meet the needs of all who wish to support our movement.

As we host hybrid conferences, we will continue to integrate IDEA centered events throughout the conference. We are committed to growth and will follow through on opportunities to hold ourselves accountable because we are committed to an inclusive space for everyone. 

We want everyone to be able to fully experience this conference. If you are in need of a reasonable accommodation for a disability, please contact us prior to the conference.  Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions on the topic of IDEA at the AGM’24, we can be reached at ​[email protected].

The work we are doing to create the world we need takes a toll on our minds, bodies, and spirits. We know Zoom fatigue is real. We recognize that people have different energy levels. We encourage attendees to create boundaries, manage their expectations, take long breaks, unplug, and re-energize to connect.
