Online Code of Conduct

Based on the Talking Maths in Public Online Activities Code of Conduct by Talking Maths in Public.

We want to ensure that everyone has a great time at our online event, so we ask all participants to follow this code of conduct.

  • Be inclusive
    Use welcoming and inclusive language, avoiding unnecessarily gendered or ableist terms, and consider others’ experiences and circumstances in what you say and do. Respect others’ pronouns. Do not engage in exclusionary behavior or language against anyone based on their race/ethnicity, gender (binary, assigned, or otherwise), disability, physical or mental health, sexual orientation, religion or belief, level of education, age, or anything else. Don't make exclusionary jokes, even "ironically.”
  • Respect and listen to each other’s views
    If you disagree with someone, challenge and discuss their idea, not them. Aggression is not welcome here.
  • Respect rights and privacy
    Don’t share anything that someone else has shared or any pictures or recordings which include other participants without their prior permission. This includes anything shared by presenters, in event chats, during collaborative activities, or discussions during the event.
  • Respect personal data
    Do not use the personal data of any person for any purpose other than the one for which it was originally shared without gaining their explicit consent in advance (this includes sharing contact details).
  • Be careful with language and content
    Please be aware that children may be present in the same room as other participants (potentially off-camera) during the event as many people will be joining from home.
  • Don't harass people
    Unconsented sexual attention, inappropriate language, or persistent unconsented communication can constitute harassment, even if this wasn’t intended.

Members violating these rules may be expelled from the event without a refund and could even be banned from future activities by the organizers.

If you are subject to, or observe, anything in violation of the above or have any other problems/concerns, please contact the organizers. You can reach us at [email protected] or through a private message within the conference platform. We will deal with all reports discreetly and confidently.

Please be aware of the effect your words and actions have on other people in the group. We want everyone to have a great time, be included, and be treated with respect. If what you’re doing is making someone feel uncomfortable, that is enough reason to stop doing it.
