Events Code of Conduct
This Code of Conduct is to be upheld at all events held in the Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences, including seminars. It is to be publicly available in advance of the event and enforced by the organisers. Guidance for event organisers is available on the NMS External Relations internal pages. The Code has been adapted from the example policy from the Geek Feminism wiki, created by the Ada Initiative and other volunteers.
Code of Conduct
The Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences is dedicated to providing a welcoming, safe and productive environment for all who attend our events, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion. We do not tolerate any form of intimidation, harassment, or disrespectful conduct at our events.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments and inappropriate or demeaning language related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion. Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, the event organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, contact an event organiser immediately.
