EVERFI embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion, and promotes respect for the dignity and value of all persons. As such, we are committed to providing a harassment-free environment for everyone–attendees, speakers, EVERFI and venue staff, and partner organizations. This includes the opportunity to learn, socialize, and work in a safe and respectful environment.
We recognize a shared responsibility to create a space for all attendees to have a positive experience. Some behaviors are, therefore, specifically prohibited: Harassment or intimidation based on race, religion, language, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, appearance, or other group status. Sexual harassment or intimidation, including unwelcome sexual attention, stalking (physical or virtual), or unsolicited physical contact. Sustained disruptions of speaker presentations.
All participants are expected to observe these guidelines for respectful behavior in all conference venues, including online venues, and conference social events. Participants asked to stop a hostile or harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Conference participants seek to learn, network, and have fun. Please do so responsibly and with respect for the right of others to do likewise.
Please contact an EVERFI staff member if you believe you have been harassed or that a harassment problem exists. All such reports will be directed immediately to Rob Buelow, Vice President of Prevention Education (firstname.lastname@example.org), who will determine and carry out the appropriate course of action. EVERFI staff will make every effort to follow-up with individuals who report being harassed.
