Virtual Event Etiquette
Attendees, speakers, partners, and volunteers at the ICT4D Partnerships Conference are expected to agree with the following etiquette. Organizers will enforce this etiquette throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.
The ICT4D Partnerships Conference strives to be a dynamic, inclusive space where development practitioners, technologists, data analysts/scientists, program managers, humanitarian aid workers, software developers, private sector leads, government representatives, researchers, funders, and others involved in the digital development field can come together for multidisciplinary conversations, learning and collaboration.
The ICT4D Partnerships Conference is dedicated to providing a safe and harassment-free online conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, legal status, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We expect participants to follow these rules during the entire conference and all its planned activities.
We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, legal status, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for any of our sessions or breakouts, breaks or reception, or on Twitter and other online media as related to the conference.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Conference participants engaging in harassing behavior, making others feel unsafe, or violating these rules may be warned, or asked to leave the conference immediately, at the discretion of the conference organizers.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact us immediately via AdminICT4DConf@crs.org.
