ATLSECCON is committed to providing an inclusive and respectful environment free of discrimination and/or harassment that invites participation, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, age, religion, national origin or citizenship.
We actively seek to increase the diversity of voices and perspectives shared at the event through calls for proposals, other open submission processes and through dialogue with the larger communities we serve. We are dedicated to creating equitable opportunities that make it possible for everyone to participate and invite you to share your own ideas and best practices, via email at info@ATLSECCON.com. Here are some ways you can help us build a more diverse conference experience:
We welcome and promote mutual respect and understanding of all participants including attendees, colleagues, volunteers, board members, sponsors, suppliers, speakers, or visitors. Discrimination and harassment is unwanted, unreasonable and offensive behavior towards the person being harassed, which creates an intimidating, hostile or humiliating environment for the person concerned. Harassment includes, but is not limited to:
Participants are expected to follow the policy at all event venues and event-related social activities. Any person(s) asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. Event staff/organizers retain the right to take any action to keep the event a welcoming and safe environment for all participants. This includes, but is not limited to, verbal warnings and/or expulsion from the conference with no refund, redress anything designed to disrupt, or having the clear impact of disrupting the event or making the environment hostile for any participants.
If a participant feels unsafe or unwelcome or witnesses harassing behavior towards another participant, they can report it to conference staff, identified by staff badges, buttons, or shirts, either personally or anonymously. Our team will be happy to help you contact hotel/venue security, local law enforcement, local support services, or otherwise assist you to feel safe for the duration of the event.
