Schedules Be Gone: The Financial and Environmental Opportunity in Enabling Smart Cleaning

Monday, October 10 · 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

Facility Management and Operations depend on schedules to direct custodial staff and related resources. And yet, we run these operations whether a space is at low, medium or full capacity leading to wasted labor, energy and consumable costs. With the advent of sensor systems able to calculate and report occupancy in real time, there is a large opportunity to move away from schedule-based cleaning and instead use actual occupancy and traffic data for smarter cleaning operations. This session will discuss the technology involved and present some case studies followed by a panel of experts that have implemented such applications with time for Q&A.

Shedding the Stigma: A Conversation on Menstrual Equity and Inclusivity

Tuesday, October 11 · 11:30 AM - 12:00 PM

During this session, participants will learn about one of the most pressing issues impacting the bathroom space today: Menstrual Equity. The commonly recognized definition refers to Menstrual Equity as period products' affordability, accessibility, and safety. Those who attend will learn how to approach menstrual equity not just through the lens of gender but as a health issue that affects every person with a period or knows someone with a period. Aunt Flow will share the importance of providing access to essential hygiene products, using inclusive language, and how companies can join the movement. Through the panel-style presentation, participants will walk away equipped with the necessary tools to create safer bathroom spaces and ensure accessibility for all people with periods
