VO Atlanta CODE OF CONDUCT
At VO Atlanta, we expect most people are respectful and well-intended and we’re not inclined to behave in an unprofessional manner. However, we want every conference to provide a harassment-free and professional experience for everyone.
We want everyone to enjoy the conference itself and the great networking and community richness that happens when we get together in person, so we will not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form—in person or online.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof); displaying sexual images; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention. Further, please understand that VO Atlanta welcomes differences of opinion and expect that each attendee is entitled to their personal viewpoint.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Sponsors and vendors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including expulsion from the conference with no refund.
If you are being harassed, or notice that someone else is being harassed, please bring it to the immediate attention of the event staff, or contact our Associate Producer, Ron Minatrea, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
VO Atlanta features a number of well established talent, coaches/presenters, agents, and directors. Please refrain from attempting to press them for private attention. The conference is for all to enjoy. That means being considerate of others and respecting both the time and space of those in attendance.
We thank you for your help in keeping the event welcoming, respectful, and friendly to all participants.
