Code of Conduct

All attendees, speakers, sponsors, and volunteers at Shift 2022 are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices.

We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form.

Definition of Harassment

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, 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, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Any speech that is deemed to be disrespectful, abusive, derogatory, or defamatory meets the definition of harassment. Sexual language and imagery are another form of harassment that is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, networking events, breakouts, social media forums and other online media.
