Code of conduct
Evaluation in a changing world
June 19 to 21, 2023; workshops on June 17 and 18; international sharing on June 22
C2023 is committed to having a safe and welcoming space that respects and values diverse perspectives and experiences. All conference delegates are expected to uphold the following principles throughout the duration of the conference.
There will be zero-tolerance for discriminatory and/or harassing behaviour or conduct of any kind. Event organisers reserve the right to take any necessary actions, including the immediate removal from the conference without refund, in response to any unacceptable behaviour.
All communication between all conference delegates at all times adheres to principles of inclusion, equity and respect particularly but not limited to gender, sexuality, ability, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic position, status, religion, age, geographic location, and physical appearance.
All engagement between all conference delegates is to be done collegially, consensually and in a manner that actualizes goals of professional educational exchange.
All conference delegates must ensure that levels of intimacy – verbally, in text form or otherwise – are appropriate, welcomed, and consensual.
All conference delegates must respect people's wishes to cease engagement and contact.
For all presentations, attendees must take actions that enable speakers to be fully heard and to contribute positively when invited to do so.
All conference delegates must promote a safe space that welcomes the respectful exchange of different and sometimes competing ideas in a community that values a diversity of perspectives.
For online workshops, attendees must download only the documents made available by presenters for this purpose and share according to the wishes of presenters while crediting the authors appropriately.
As a conference delegate, you play an important role in creating an inclusive event where we all feel welcome. Examples of things you can do include:
Avoid wearing strong scents (e.g., from perfumes or aftershaves).
Avoid crowding attendees who are using canes or wheelchairs; maintain sufficient open space for mobility requirements.
Give up the aisle seat if someone needs it.
Use a microphone when asking questions during in-person sessions.
Mute your microphone when you are not speaking during virtual sessions.
Ask the presenter to describe what’s happening in their silent video or busy slide, for the benefit of those who can’t see it.
Be accommodating of different communication styles and refrain from making assumptions if someone needs to, for example, pace up and down or go to a quiet space.
