An interesting day

Code of Conduct

We want An Interesting Day to be an harassment-free (and fun-filled!) event. In order to make this happen, everyone attending the conference should read and comply to the following Code of Conduct:

An Interesting Day should be a friendly place where everyone feels welcome and safe. Bakken & Bæck is dedicated to making the day as interesting and inclusive as possible for all participants, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion.

Harrassment

All attendees, speakers, performers, and staff are required to be nice; harassment or bullying in any form has no place at An Interesting Day. This includes, but is not limited to, offensive verbal comments, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention and sustained disruption of talks or other events.

If a participant engages in any of the aforementioned behaviours, Bakken & Bæck reserves the right to take any action deemed appropriate, from issuing a formal warning to immediately expelling the offender.

Reporting

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified by a staff button. We will be happy to connect participants to the relevant people (including the staff of De School, security, or local law enforcement), provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event.

If you can’t or don’t wish to speak in person, please email aninterestingday@bakkenbaeck.com and a member of our staff will respond to you as quickly as possible. All reports will be handled in the strictest confidence.

Thanks
