Our goal is to create an inclusive, respectful conference environment that invites participation from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, and sexual orientations. We’re actively seeking to increase the diversity of our attendees, speakers, and sponsors through our calls for proposals, other open submission processes, and through dialogue with the larger communities we serve.
This is an ongoing process. Utah Geek Events(UGE) will continue to update this policy and welcomes suggestions to this policy.
How can you help with Diversity at UGE events?
For Fully Virtual events this Code of Conducts apply to items shared as well through Backgrounds or images that an attendee displays while on Video. Zoom backgrounds, Profile pictures, or shared images that violate this policy will not be tolerated.
Code of Conduct
Utah Geek Events wants to provide the best possible experience for everyone, at all of our events. We strive to make our events as inclusive and safe as possible. Towards that goal, our objective is to increase the participation of diverse community members.
Utah Geek Events believes our community should be truly open for everyone. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, or religion.
This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participant behavior. We invite all sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, vendors, and other participants to help us have a safe and positive conference experience for everyone.
We expect all conference participants (sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, vendors, and other guests) to abide by this code of conduct at all conference venues and conference-related social events.
Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior
Unacceptable behavior by other attendees, organizers, speakers, volunteers, venue staff, sponsors, or other patrons of Utah Geek Events will not be tolerated.
Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.
If anyone engages in unacceptable behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including expulsion from the conference without warning and may possibly face exclusion from future UGE community events and conferences.
