EVOMICS WORKSHOPS CODE OF CONDUCT

All attendees, instructors and faculty at our workshops are required to agree with the Evomics Workshops code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody. Those found to be in violation of this code of conduct will be subject to expulsion from all Workshop activities at the request of the workshop organisers.

Our Code of Conduct

Our workshops are dedicated to providing a supportive and harassment-free environment 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, instructors or faculty in any form.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, deliberate behaviour to exclude, intimidate, or cause discomfort, and unwelcome sexual attention. This applies to any workshop venue, including talks, workshops, social events, parties, slack, Facebook, Twitter and other online media, and any other non-official events or activities taking place over the duration of the workshop.

If anyone engages in harassing behaviour, the organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, ranging from warning the offender or expulsion from the workshop without a refund. This includes the storage of personal information pertinent to the incident.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other related concerns, please contact a member of the organising team immediately. A point of contact dedicated to dealing with these issues will be highlighted during the welcome talk, but please know that you can discuss issues with the Workshop directors.
