As a part of First Up’s ongoing commitment to promoting equity in early childhood education, we have shifted our conference rates from a traditional one price point model to a sliding scale model. As Little Red Bird Botanicals states, “A sliding scale is a tool for building economic justice, and it requires your active participation. … A … range of payment options across the scale promotes broader accessibility, while ensuring fair compensation to the producer. Paying according to one’s available resources creates a more equitable system for pricing of products and services.”
There are three levels of ticketing available for this event: Hero, Full Price, and Sliding Scale.
Hero tickets not only cover the cost of the conference attendance for the individual, they also provide an additional contribution that allows First Up to offset the cost of sliding scale tickets.
Full Price tickets covers all of the costs associated with your attendance but does not provide support for others to attend.
Sliding Scale tickets are for those for whom it would create a significant burden or hardship to pay the full price, and uses redistributed money from those who can afford to pay more to offset the costs of attendance.
Download this PDF to help you more deeply consider which of these options best reflects your personal circumstances.
Hero Ticket: $100
Full Price Ticket: $50
Sliding Scale Ticket: $25
