We make EMERGE happen because we are curious how technologies change our lives, what is ahead for us and who are the next unicorns to rock the Universe. These goals are only achievable in the environment which values each individual and nurtures mutual respect.
We aim to make EMERGE conference a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone. This Сode of Сonduct states the behaviour we support and don't tolerate both at the conference and online, incl. any social media and emails. We expect all attendees, speakers, sponsors, partners, exhibitors, team members and volunteers to adhere to EMERGE Code of Conduct.
EMERGE Team Stands for:
Together with EMERGE guests, we create the best tech-conference in the New East and one day in the world. It means, we encourage respectful and tolerant behaviour towards everyone at EMERGE which also comes with curiosity, open-mindedness and a good amount of fun. We don't accept harassment or offensive behaviour at our conference venues or anywhere. It contradicts our company values. Moreover, it contradicts our values as human beings.
We are committed to creating a place that is welcoming and respectful to all participants, regardless of race, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, age, national origin, ethnicity, or religion.
These behaviours do not belong at EMERGE events:
When we say 'harassment', we mean offensive comments, verbal threats or demands, sexualised images in public spaces, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording. Harassment also includes sustained disruption of sessions or events, unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention, slights and negative messages, both unintended and intentional. This also applies to the speakers' presentations which should not use images or examples that would violate the Сode of Сonduct.
Sponsors, partners and exhibitors should not use sexual images, giveaways, activities, or other materials in their promotions. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use suggestive clothing/uniforms/costumes or otherwise create a sexualised environment.
We expect all participants — attendees, speakers, sponsors, partners, exhibitors, team members and volunteers — to follow the Code of Conduct during the conference and all the conference-related social events at off-site locations, and in related online communities and social media.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of EMERGE team immediately. We will take action to assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe at the conference. EMERGE Team and volunteers can be identified by their #emergegang t-shirts and badges. You can also contact Valentine Kirik, Operations Director at EMERGE, at +375 (29) 631-54-79 (cell) or by email at email@example.com All reports will be kept confidential among our team, who have been trained to respond to violations of this Code of Conduct.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. Conference participants violating this Code of Conduct may be expelled from the conference without a refund, and/or banned from future EMERGE events, at the discretion of EMERGE organisers.
Thanks for making EMERGE a welcoming and respectful place for emerging ideas, great minds and new collaborations!
