Due to unexpected behaviors of participants, it has become essential to immediately implement a code of conduct. This may go through revision, but until then, this stands.
ADA 30 Michigan Code of Conduct
All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at MI-ADA are required to adhere to the following code of conduct. This code will be enforced throughout all events. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.
To ensure that conference sessions are informational and fun, and allow everyone to feel included and safe to participate, MI-ADA is dedicated to providing an experience free of hate speech and harassment 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 hate speech, disrespect, or harassment of conference participants, including presenters, in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not acceptable, except with topic appropriate and pre-arranged presentations. MI-ADA participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from MI-ADA at the sole discretion of MI-ADA organizers.
