Effective June 9, 2020
All TypeWknd attendees, speakers, workshop leaders, moderators,
sponsors, organizers, and volunteers at our conference 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 and welcoming environment for everyone.
Be professional and kind to each other, and to yourself.
Our conference is committed to
providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of
gender, identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability,
physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, lifestyle, religion (or
lack thereof), professional experience (or lack thereof), or technology
choices (or lack thereof).
We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants.
Conference participants violating
these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a
refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.
Harassment includes offensive
comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual
orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race,
ethnicity, religion, lifestyle, professional experience, or technology
choices; sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation,
threats of violence, stalking, following, or harassing; photography or
recording without two-party consent; sustained disruption of talks or
other events; inappropriate electronic contact; and unwelcome sexual
At the conference organizers' sole
discretion, an exception may be made for discussion or images related to
any of the topics described above if:
- the content is required in order to teach or speak about a typographic topic
- no other alternative content exists
- the content is presented professionally and respectfully
If such an exception is made, ample notice will be provided to
attendees in advance. Anyone who wishes to leave the event or otherwise
avoid exposure to the content will be reasonably accommodated and
provided complementary re-entry to the conference after the content is
no longer being discussed or displayed.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Sponsors are also subject to the
anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use
inflammatory or sexualised materials, nor promote offensive activities,
in connection with the conference.
If a participant engages in harassing
behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem
appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the
conference with no refund.
If you are being harassed, notice
that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please
contact a member of TypeWknd staff immediately via email at email@example.com.
Your emails will be kept in the strictest confidence. We will respond as quickly as possible.
TypeWknd staff will be designated
with a red diamond emoji “♦️” next to their name at all conference
events and can also help contact appropriate law enforcement or
otherwise assist you. We value your attendance.
We expect participants to follow these rules at all TypeWknd events including social venues.
