Code of Conduct
You’re invited to come as you are, and engage with presenters, participants, data and content in a way that’s meaningful and applicable to your own personal perspective. As such, we are committed to creating events that are diverse, inclusive, safe, and free from discrimination, regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, transgender status, age, disability, veteran or marital status, or any other classification protected by law.
All participants of New Rules for Work events must abide by the following policy:
- Be considerate, respectful, and collaborative. While it is fine (encouraged, even!) to challenge the ideas or arguments of others, avoid calling them names or making disrespectful comments about them. If you and event participant have a disagreement, make an effort to understand their points of view before you respond to them. And when you respond, strive to provide reasonable responses.
- When you share publicly content that others have posted and/or created, provide appropriate credit, preferably in the form of a link to the creator’s profile or digital presence.
- Alert event organizers if you notice any behavior that is not aligned with this code of conduct by emailing info@NewRulesforWork.com.
Unacceptable behaviors may include but are not limited to:
- Harassment and discrimination includes any verbal, physical, or visual conduct based on sex, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, transgender status, race, age, national origin, disability. Inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images; deliberate intimidation, stalking or following; harassing, photography or recording; sustained disruption of sessions, talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact, and any unwelcome sexual attention.
- Any boisterous, lewd or offensive behavior or language, using sexually explicit or offensive language or conduct, profanity, obscene gestures, or racial, religious or ethnic slurs.
- Wearing clothing in video or photos that is not suitable for a professional work environment, that is provocative, inappropriate or otherwise potentially offensive.
- Being intoxicated, as determined by New Rules for Work, in any event site or function. Please drink responsibly.
- Showcasing or promoting any illegal substance in conversation, chat, photo, video, or text.
- Assembling for the purpose of, or resulting in, disturbing the peace, or committing any unlawful act or engaging in any offensive behavior.
- Any other illegal activity not already covered above.
- Failure to obey any of the rules or regulations of the event or instructions of the event staff.

Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior
Unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated. Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in unacceptable behavior, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the event without warning or refund and if appropriate, involvement of local law enforcement. Breaches of this Code of Conduct can also result in disqualification from participating in future events.
