On Diversity, Safety, and Inclusion
Our goal is for everyone to feel safe and included during our events. We ask all attendees to be aware and sensitive to the gender identities and expressions, diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, and sexualities of the people you will meet and interact with.
Clever Kate Events Code of Conduct
Participants agree to:
Be considerate in speech and actions and actively seek to acknowledge and respect the boundaries of fellow attendees.
Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech. Adhere to the principle of affirmative consent in all interactions with fellow attendees and speakers.
Harassment includes, but is not limited to:
Harassing or discriminatory speech or imagery (including racist, homophobic, transphobic, sexist, and ableist speech); inappropriate physical contact; sustained or willful disruption of people talking or other; unwelcome sexual attention; unwanted photography or recording; and deliberate intimidation.
Affirmative consent is:
"Yes means yes." This most obviously applies to sexual interactions, but also applies to casual physical and social interactions ("Can I join your lunch table?", "Can I get a picture with you?", and "Can I hug you?", for example). If any attendee engages in harassing behavior, the organizers may take any lawful action we deem appropriate, including but not limited to asking the offender to leave the event.
We are very open to your feedback on this, and thank you for working with us to make safe, enjoyable, and friendly experiences for everyone!
