Code of Conduct

We are dedicated to providing a safe, harassment-free environment for all events, training courses and shared communications channels associated therein.

We are committed to providing a diverse, respectful and safe environment that is free from bullying, discrimination, harassment, intimidation, violence or threats thereof.

We invite you to make this space, physical or virtual, a welcoming and respectful place for all participants, regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, national origin, ethnicity, or religion.

We expect all participants — attendees, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, organizers and volunteers — to treat others with respect and abide by the following Code of Conduct. This includes social events at off-site locations, online activities and social media before, during and after the event itself.

Unacceptable Behaviours

These behaviours, in any form, will not be tolerated at any time:

  • Harassment
  • Intimidation
  • Abuse
  • Discrimination
  • Use of sexualized language and images. This includes presentations, slides, and speaker content.
  • Possession and/or use of illegal substances
  • Possession of an item that can be used as a weapon causing harm to others

Our definition of harassment includes:

  • Unwelcome or hostile behaviour, including verbal or written comments that intimidate, create discomfort or interfere with a person’s participation at the event
  • Unwelcome physical contact
  • Unwelcome sexual attention

Consequences of Unacceptable Behaviour

Participants asked to stop unacceptable behaviour are expected to comply immediately. Participants who violate the Code of Conduct may be expelled from the event and related activities without a refund and/or banned from future events at the organizers’ discretion.

If You Experience or Witness Unacceptable Behaviour

We need your help to keep the community safe, accountable and responsible. If you experience or witness any forms of unacceptable behaviour, please bring your concerns to an Amii staff person’s immediate attention or contact directly.

Thank you for your help keeping Amii and the broader community safe, welcoming and respectful for all.
