TL;DR

Treat everyone in a respectful and kind manner. Harassment and abuse are never tolerated. If you are in a situation that makes you uncomfortable at a DDD East Midlands event, if the event itself is creating an unsafe or inappropriate environment or you are made to feel uncomfortable by anyone at any of our events or in our online communities, please let a member of the event team know or contact  jessica@dddeastmidlands.com or moreton@dddeastmidlands.com

The Full Version

Inclusivity is a core value of DDD East Midlands. We believe that every single person has the right to take part in DDD East Midlands events and online communities in a safe and welcoming environment.

Harassment includes but is not limited to offensive verbal or written comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, sexual behaviour, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

If what you’re doing is making someone feel uncomfortable, that counts as harassment and is enough reason to stop doing it.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. Sponsors, venue staff, speakers, volunteers, organisers, and anyone else at any of our events or in our online communities are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, attendees should not use sexualised images, humour, activities, or other material in presentations, during events and on our online community.

If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, DDD East Midlands may take any action DDD East Midlands deems appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the events and our online communities with no eligibility for reimbursement or refund of any type.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please let a member of the event team know or contact jessica@dddeastmidlands.com and moreton@dddeastmidlands.com

DDD East Midlands representatives will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe while involved in DDD East Midlands events and our online communities.

The facilities provided at DDD East Midlands events, including networks, internet access, wifi, power supply, furniture, toilets and the physical environment in general, must be used with respect, in full accordance of the law, the terms of this document and any additional terms laid out at the event. When breaches of these terms take place DDD East Midlands may take any action DDD East Midlands deems appropriate, including warning the offender, expulsion from the events and our online communities with no eligibility for reimbursement or refund of any type, or even involving law enforcement.

Approaching People About Jobs

At our events and on our online community it is not considered acceptable to approach people unsolicited about jobs, it doesn't make for a welcoming environment and it isn't what our community is for.

Job promotions should include the name of the role, the name of the company and information about where people can find out more and apply.
