Code of conduct

altGDC is dedicated to providing a positive and harassment-free event experience for everyone, regardless of age, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, race, religion, or level of experience. We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form, nor do we tolerate any behavior that would reasonably lead to another event participant being made to feel unsafe, insecure, or frightened for their physical or emotional well-being.

Examples of encouraged behavior that contributes to a positive environment include:

Unacceptable behavior includes:

Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Behave professionally. Remember that harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate at this event.

Each event guest is entirely responsible for his or her own actions.

Thank you for helping to make this a welcoming, friendly space for all.

Reporting an Incident

To discuss any incident or behaviour in violation of this code of conduct, please contact Em Lazer-Walker ([email protected]), or another altGDC organizer, either in person at the event or by phone or email. We will take any complaints seriously, and respond promptly and appropriately. Any person, including event staff, who violates this Code of Conduct may be asked to remedy their behaviour, apologise, leave the event, or be banned from future events.

Our goal in dealing with reported incidents is to assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.
