The Baby Summit – Code of Conduct

 

 

We invite all attendees, speakers, sponsors, vendors and volunteers to help make The Baby Summit a place that is welcoming and respectful to all participants, regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, national origin, ethnicity, or religion. So that everyone can focus on the conference itself, and the great networking and community strength that happens when we get together, we will not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any way—in person or online.

 

CODE OF ETHICAL CONDUCT:

  • Be considerate and respectful to ALL participants including models and parents of models.
  • Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory or harassing behaviour and speech.
  • Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants. Alert TBS staff if you notice a dangerous situation or someone in need of help.
  • Lanyards are to be worn at all times throughout the conference including all social events.
  • The Baby Summit is a childfree event, however infants are welcome to accompany their mothers as situations may require, but we respectfully ask if your baby becomes unsettled or disruptive that you are to excuse yourself from sessions so they do not disturb other attendees.
  • During social events where alcohol is being served the venue will cease serving to anybody intoxicated.
  • Social Events are not for minors or non-attendees.
  • Mobile phones are to be switched to silent mode during all sessions and calls are to be taken outside of the session rooms.
  • And if you see someone by themselves “SAY HELLO” introduce yourself.

 

 

UNACCEPTABLE CONDUCT:

Unacceptable behaviour includes: intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, and derogatory or demeaning conduct by any attendees at the event and related event activities. All who participate in the conference deserve respectful treatment, regardless of the capacity in which they are attending, whether a speaker, vendor, volunteer, or a TBS staff member.

Harassment includes: offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion or disability; inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images in public spaces (including presentation slides); deliberate intimidation, stalking or following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention.

Physical or verbal abuse, intimidation, threats, efforts to annoy others, harassment, stalking, pushing, shoving or use of any physical force whatsoever against any person, which in any way creates a disturbance that is disruptive or dangerous is also unacceptable.

If you witness or experience any conduct that breaches the code during the conference or online please bring this to the attention of The Baby Summit staff in person or by emailing info@thebabysummit.com

All disgruntlements should be and will be dealt with privately and allow the grievance process to work out before allowing any public discussion on the matter.

 

CONSEQUENCES OF UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR:

Unacceptable behaviour will not be tolerated at the conference or related events, whether by attendees, speakers, volunteers, organizers, venue staff, sponsors or vendors.

Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behaviour is expected to comply immediately.

We expect all conference participants (staff, sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees and other guests) to abide by this code of conduct at all conference venues and conference‐related social events as a condition of attendance or participation. The Baby Summit, in its discretion, may remove those who violate this Code from continued attendance or participation in some or all of the conference, without refund of any fees paid.

 

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at The Baby Summit 2016.
