Code of conduct

dConstruct is an inclusive event based on treating all individuals respectfully, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or software preferences. So please don’t be nasty or mean. Be nice. Be considerate. Be civil. It’s easy.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff. They will be clearly visible, wearing “Volunteer” T-shirts. Or if you spot me, Jeremy Keith (I’ll be the one introducing the speakers), please don’t hesitate to grab me. If you can’t immediately spot me or a dConstruct volunteer, please speak to a member of the Brighton Dome staff and they’ll be able to get hold of me quickly.

You can phone or text me on 07792 069292 but if I’m not responding, Kate Bulpitt will be at the front desk for most of the day, so if you can’t get hold of me, please speak to her.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, 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.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior must immediately comply. If a participant engages in any of the aforementioned behavior, we may take any action we deem appropriate, from warning the offender to immediately expelling the offender from dConstruct with no refund.
