All participants, including, but not limited to, attendees, speakers, volunteers, exhibitors, SIR staff, service providers and others are expected to abide by this Meeting Code of Conduct. This policy applies to all live SIR meeting-related events, including those sponsored by organizations other than SIR but held in conjunction with SIR events, in public or private facilities or any virtual or online gathering or event that is hosted or sponsored by SIR.
SIR expects all participants, staff, guests and vendors at every SIR meeting to behave responsibly and professionally. In addition, SIR expects participants to comply with the following:
SIR has zero-tolerance for any form of discrimination or harassment, including, but not limited to, sexual harassment by, or of, anyone participating in the meeting. Unacceptable behavior includes, but is not limited to:
SIR reserves the right to take any action deemed necessary and appropriate, including immediate removal from the meeting without warning or refund, in response to any incident of unacceptable behavior, and SIR reserves the right to prohibit attendance at any future meeting.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any concerns that require prompt assistance, SIR asks that you inform SIR staff, identified by staff ribbons or SIR backgrounds or report the incident to email@example.com so that we can take the appropriate action. The policy may be revised at any time by SIR without notice. In the event of an emergency, please contact local authorities immediately.
