CODE OF CONDUCT
Startup Boston is dedicated to providing a harassment-free event experience 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 event participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any event venue, including talks.
Event participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event at the discretion of the organizers or venue staff.
Harassment includes verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing 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 behavior, the event organizers 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, please tell a Startup Boston organizer or volunteer immediately.
Startup Boston organizers will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event.
We value your participation in our community.
If you see something or would like to report an incident confidentially please reach out to the organizers at: startupbos (at) gmail (dot) com
Additionally, there will be no solicitation at the event. Startup Boston is a place to build relationships, not to market products or services. Please note, we reserve the right to remove attendees for any reason at the organizers’ sole discretion.
All attendees and participants are expected to follow these rules at all event venues and event-related social events.
