Code of conduct

Sharing ideas, collaboration and openness are central to our work at Deeson, and we practice what we preach with events tailored to foster interesting conversations on all things digital.

If you’re joining us at a Deeson event, we want you to feel safe and enjoy your time with us. Because we’re open by design, we love getting together to share our findings and start interesting conversations - all we ask is that every participant has agreed to our Code of Conduct.

And if you’re at a Deeson event and need help, or have questions about the below, please get in touch in person, or on the contact details in your email invitation.

The short read.

Deeson events are for everybody, so we’re committed to providing an environment that feels safe and free from harassment for all attendees, whatever their gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices.

This includes the showing of sexual imagery, which isn’t appropriate at any of our events, whether at the venue, during talks, webinars and workshops, at parties, or on online media. Anybody found to be in violation of these guidelines may be given a warning or asked to leave the event.

The long(er) read

Harassment may seem like a vague term, and we know different people have different boundaries, so to make sure we’re all on the same page, here’s a list of behaviours that we consider unacceptable:

  • offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, and technology choices
  • sexual images in public spaces
  • deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events
  • inappropriate physical contact
  • unwelcome sexual attention

This policy applies to everybody who comes to our events. If we ask a participant to stop harassing behaviour, we expect them to comply with immediate effect, and they may receive a warning or be asked to leave the event.

We want every Deeson event to be a safe, enjoyable space for people to freely share ideas and learnings, so if you are being harassed, or think you see harassing behaviour, please tell a member of the Deeson team as soon as possible so we can take the steps necessary to to help our attendees feel safe.
