We do not tolerate harassing or disrespectful behavior, interactions, messages, or images, by any participant in an Agile Alliance activity, in any form. This includes business and social activities, regardless of location.

We encourage everyone to help in creating a welcoming and safe environment. Please report any concerns, harassing behavior, suspicious or disruptive activity using the email contact@4gileminds.ro.

Agile Alliance reserves the right to refuse admittance to, or remove any person from an activity at any time at its sole discretion.

Everyone. All participants in any Agile Alliance activity, including attendees, speakers, sponsors, volunteers, contributors etc, are required to agree with and adhere to the code of conduct.

[/fusion_content_box][fusion_content_box title=”What is considered harassment / a breach of the Code of Conduct?” backgroundcolor=”” icon=”fa-hourglass-half fas” iconflip=”” iconrotate=”” iconspin=”” iconcolor=”” circlecolor=”” circlebordersize=”” circlebordercolor=”” outercirclebordersize=”” outercirclebordercolor=”” image=”” image_id=”” image_max_width=”” link=”” linktext=”” link_target=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_offset=””]

Harassment includes (but is not limited to):

  • intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory, or demeaning conduct;
  • offensive verbal or written comments related to gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, age, religion, political views, technology choices;
  • inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images in public spaces (including presentation slides);
  • deliberate intimidation, stalking or following;
  • harassing photography or recording;
  • sustained disruption of talks or other events;
  • inappropriate physical contact, or unwelcome sexual attention.

Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any situation, including talks, workshops, special events, meetings, and online presentations. Event sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.

Some venues are shared with members of the public; please be respectful to all patrons of these locations.

Participants in any 4gileMinds activity asked to stop harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the 4gileMinds may take any action it deems appropriate, including reporting to authorities. 4gileMinds reserves the right to refuse admittance to, or remove any person from an activity at any time at its sole discretion. At conferences specifically, participants violating these rules may be expelled from the conference without a refund at the sole discretion of the Managing Director or Board Chair of 4gileMinds.

Every incident is important, no matter how minor it might seem at the time. Please seek help as soon as possible for anything you consider harassment or a breach of the Code of Conduct. You should also report all incidents as soon as possible after the incident occurs.

It is everybody’s responsibility to create and maintain a safe and respectful environment. As such, you should report incidents:

  • If it is something that has happened to you
  • If someone shared something with you, or you were with them when it happened
  • If you saw something happen from afar

If you need help, or need to report an incident please contact any of the following: Program Committee Members, Track Chairs, Registration desk, 4gileMinds Staff or Board, Volunteers, or Venue Staff.

If you cannot find any of these people, or are involved in a 4gileMinds activity which is not part of a conference, you can send us an email at contact@4gileminds.ro.
