Important! LabMan has been rescheduled for new dates in 2022: June 29th, June 30th, and July 1st.
At LabMan, we believe that every person deserves respect. While we do recognize our peers with respect for their extraordinary contributions, we believe treating each other with respect and dignity is always expected. We also want LabMan to be a safe and productive environment for all participants. LabMan's code of conduct ensures a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, ability, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), socioecomonic status, or physical appearance.
We take pride in being open, transparent, respectful and inclusive of any individual who wants to participate. We strive to offer a professional and inclusive environment, so please review our Code of Conduct as it outlines our expectations for all attendees regardless of affiliation or status (organizer or not),and covers what we consider unacceptable behavior. We invite everyone who participates in LabMan to help us create a safe and positive experience for everyone. Our Code of Conduct has been inspired by and adapted from several sources including:
The following behaviors are expected and requested of all community members:
Alert community leaders and/or conference staff if you notice a dangerous situation, someone in distress, or violations of this Code of Conduct, even if they seem inconsequential.
The following actions are considered harassment and are unacceptable within our community. Harassment also includes slights and negative messages, both unintended and intentional, based solely on appearance (sometimes called microaggressions).
Unacceptable behavior from any community member, including sponsors and those with decision-making authority, will not be tolerated. If you are asked to stop harrassing behavior you are expected to and you will comply, or you will be asked to leave. If necessary, our on-site security provider or police will escort you from the premises if you refuse to leave. These behaviors will not be tolerated. No refunds will be provided. If a community member engages in unacceptable behavior, the community organizers and/or conference staff may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from the community. No refunds will be provided.
We expect all community participants to abide by this Code of Conduct in all community venues – online and in-person – as well as in all one-on-one communications about community business. This code of conduct and its related procedures also applies to unacceptable behavior occurring outside the scope of community activities when such behavior has the potential to affect the safety and well-being of community members adversely.
