CODE OF CONDUCT

All Aaltoes events have a zero tolerance for all intimidating and disrespectful behaviour. When attending Aaltoes events, every attendee agrees to respect everyone regardless of their appearance, gender, race, religion, age, sexual orientation, disability or other personal attributes.

 

Behaviour we don’t tolerate is for example (but not limited to):

  • Verbal, disrespectful comments towards any attendee or organiser

  • Intimidating behaviour or violence towards any attendee or organiser

  • Inappropriate physical contact towards any attendee or organiser

  • Sustained disruption of talks or other events

  • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Advocating for or encouraging any of the above behavior

​​​​​​​​​​

Repercussions of CoC violations
By attending events organised by Aaltoes, you agree to obey these rules. Unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated. Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in unacceptable behavior, Aaltoes may take any action it deems appropriate, including warning or expelling the offender from the event. For more egregious behavior, Aaltoes may, in its reasonable discretion, temporarily ban or permanently ban a participant from the community. Continuous behavior that violates the code of conduct will also lead to permanent ban from all Aaltoes events and activities.

 

What to do if you encounter CoC violations?
The Aaltoes Code of Conduct has been established to secure that every attendee in our event feels safe and respected. If you are subjected to unacceptable behavior, notice that someone else is being subjected to unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify Aaltoes event staff or contact the harassment contact people (below) as soon as possible. Aaltoes event staff will be available to assist those experiencing unacceptable behavior to feel safe for the duration of the event. All events have designated harassment contact people introduced at the beginning of events and can be distinguished by their yellow armbands. All raised cases will be handled confidentially and thoroughly, involving all parties and if necessary, third parties such as the police.
