MANA believes that the most enriching and educational conferences include people from diverse backgrounds, and for midwifery to thrive we need to hear the perspectives of midwives from all communities. Recognizing the historical barriers to inclusion of midwives of color, and their integral role in helping US midwifery to grow, the MANA Board of Directors are pleased to offer complimentary and reduced-rate registrations to midwives and students of color.
If you would like to be considered in the lottery for a complimentary spot, please email the Treasurer with your name, contact information, and whether you are a midwife or student midwife. The deadline to apply for the lottery is
July 1, 2018 extended to July 15 and you will be notified by July 25, 2018 if your name was randomly selected to receive a complimentary registration. Please note that travel and hotel are not included in the scholarship. It is for full conference registration only.
