Community Guidelines

Diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility are at the core of who we are. At Disability:IN, we promote the full inclusion of people with disabilities, inspire accessible innovation for all, and foster cultures of inclusion. We’ve put a lot of thought into Community Guidelines that can help us create and protect a safe and open environment for everyone. As we gather virtually and in-person for our global conference, we ask you to help us in upholding the following shared commitments:

  • Be kind, open-minded, and respectful of everyone’s perspectives and experiences.
  • Do your part to prioritize accessibility and create spaces that allow everyone to participate fully and meaningfully.
  • Alert event staff or security if you notice instances of harassment. Harassment is not tolerated, and you are empowered but not required to politely engage when you or others are disrespected if it safe to do so.
  • We have a zero-tolerance policy for in-person or online harassment of any kind, including, but not limited to:
    • Stalking/following
    • Deliberate intimidation
    • Harassing photography or recording
    • Sustained deliberate or malicious disruption of talks or other events
    • Sexual Harassment or intimidation
    • Offensive verbal language
    • Verbal language that reinforces social structures of domination
    • Unwanted physical contact
    • Physical or cyberbullying, trolling, or threats
  • Attendees or their guests, family members, or PCAs asked to stop harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Failure to respect these boundaries may result in being removed from the premises and/or having Conference App access revoked. Decisions will be made solely by Disability:IN staff or their designees.
  • Disability:IN is not responsible for theft, damages, harassment, or any behavior by conference attendees, facility staff, or other visitors not involved in the conference.
