Pitch-Free

Code of Conduct

 

The Richmond Technology Council (Council) is dedicated to providing positive, harassment-free experiences for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of Council participants in any form. Council participants include attendees, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers and staff.

Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any Council venue, including talks. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, unwanted 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.

If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, the Council retains the right to take any actions to maintain a welcoming environment for all participants. This includes warning the offender or expulsion from the Council or event without refund. The Council may take action to redress anything designed to, or with the clear impact of, disrupting events or making environments hostile for any participants.

We expect participants to follow these rules at all event venues and event-related social activities.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please report it immediately. You can report it to a member of the Council staff, event committee member or to the Executive Director contact listed below.

Our team will be happy to help you contact security, local law enforcement, local support services, provide escorts, or otherwise assist you to feel safe during all Council events. We value your participation. We expect participants to follow these rules at all Council venues and Council-related social events. If you find this policy restrictive, please do not attend or speak at Council events.
