Haymarket Media Group – Events Code of Conduct 

Haymarket Media Group is committed to ensuring its events provide a positive and enjoyable experience for everyone present.

The purpose of this Code of Conduct (CoC) is to ensure a safe, respectful and inclusive environment for everyone involved in our events. 

The CoC applies to everyone involved in any aspect of our events. This includes physical and virtual events, and any judging events.

Key Principles: 
We want everyone to feel welcome, valued and safe, and able to engage without fear of harassment, bullying, humiliation, pressure, intimidation or injury. 

To that end, we expect everyone to act professionally, to be respectful of others both in person at the event, and in any interaction before or after the event. 

We do not tolerate behaviour which could be perceived as harassment, discrimination, bullying, offensive language, physical or verbal abuse, or any form of inappropriate conduct.

We have a zero tolerance approach to harassment or discrimination in any form. 

The following are examples of the types of behaviours we deem unacceptable: 

  • Harassment including sexist, racist, or exclusionary comments or jokes are not appropriate. Sustained interruptions, inappropriate, unwanted physical contact, sexual attention or innuendo, deliberate intimidation, stalking, and photography or recording of an individual without consent 

  • Offensive comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body image, age, race, religion or belief, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership or pregnancy and maternity 

  • Sharing of content which is inappropriate for our diverse, professional audiences, including sexual language and imagery 

  • Belittling or insulting other attendees
