This Code of Conduct spells out the behaviour we support and don’t support at our conferences.
We do not condone harassment or offensive behaviour, at our conference venues or anywhere.
It’s counter to our company values. More importantly, it’s counter to our values as human beings. We’re voicing our strong, unequivocal support of appropriate behaviour by all participants at our events.
Fraunhofer is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices.
Inappropriate behaviour can take many forms such as slurs; jokes; derogatory statements; foul or obscene language; offensive clothing; leering; stalking; staring; gestures; pictures, drawings or cartoons; violating personal space by impeding or blocking another person’s movement or otherwise physically interfering with them; harassing photography or recordings; unwanted or offensive letters or poems; offensive email or voicemail messages; or social media postings.
We therefore do not tolerate harassment of conference participants, or any inappropriate behaviour in any form.
We expect all participants—attendees, speakers, sponsors, and staff—to follow the Code of Conduct during the conference. This includes conference-related social events at off-site locations, and in related online communities and social media.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. Conference participants violating this Code of Conduct may be expelled from the conference at any time, and/or banned from future events.
If you are witness, subjected to inappropriate behaviour, or would have any concerns, then please bring this to the immediate attention of the organisers of the event, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We invite you to help us make the RTO Innovation Summit a place that is welcoming and respectful to all participants.
