Code of Conduct

The CGX Mentor Lounge is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion, or any other personal expression. We do not tolerate harassment of attendees or participants in any form. Attendees or participants found violating these rules will be expelled from the Mentor Lounge.

Harassment includes but is not limited to offensive verbal comments related to gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion, unwanted or unwarranted images which are sexual or otherwise, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Attendees or participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant or attendee engages in harassing behavior, the CGX Mentor Lounge may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the Mentor Lounge. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact Jillian Mood or a CGX committee member immediately.

The CGX Mentor Lounge will be happy to help participants and attendees contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance and participation and need to know you feel safe and respected at all times.

We expect all attendees and participants to follow these rules at all CGX Mentor Lounge spaces and related social events, including our online channels (website, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc.).
