Code of Conduct

NEED HELP? Send us an email; we will be happy to assist you. hi@startupconf.co

All conference attendees, including speakers, sponsors, and volunteers, are required to agree to our code of conduct. We will enforce this code throughout the event, and we expect cooperation from all participants to help us ensure a safe environment for everybody.

The Quick Version

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter, Facebook, and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at our discretion.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, we may take any action we deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference without a refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the conference staff immediately. The conference staff can be identified by their branded clothing or by their badges.

The conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at our conference, conference venues, and conference-related social events.

If you have any questions or suggestions about our Code of Conduct, do not hesitate to contact us.
