Event Code of Conduct
Providing a code of conduct to event attendees is an easy way to set clear expectations for how an event should run and how participants should behave. A code of conduct can also be a good way to communication information about the accessibility of the event.
Example Code of Conduct
To ensure the safety and inclusivity of everyone this event, all speakers, participants and staff are required to uphold this code of conduct. To do this we ask that you:

- honour timed discussion and question limits and share the space and encourage others to share their views and experiences
- do not engage in demeaning, argumentative or antagonising behaviour.
- avoid assumptions or stereotyping
- understand that shouting, swearing, harassment, threatening or humiliating behaviour is unacceptable, and you will be removed from the event
