Code of Conduct for Conferences and Webinars

The Event Host strives to create a diverse, inclusive, accepting and safe space for everyone.

All voices are welcome to ensure diversity of thought we invite as speakers, attendees, and guests at our conferences and webinars. There is a zero-tolerance policy for any form of discrimination or abusive behavior.

  1. Attestation. By registering for a webinar or conference, you are agreeing to treat fellow participants respectfully, helping to ensure welcome conversation from all participants. Participants also acknowledge that any form of discrimination, violence, or abusive behavior may result in removal from a session, webinar, or conference, depending on the situation.
  1. Disruptive Conduct. You acknowledge and agree that the Alliance reserves the right to refuse or approve admittance of any individual (or) remove you from the Event if the ALLIANCE, in its sole discretion, determines that your participation or behavior create a disruption or hinder the Event or the enjoyment of the Event content by other attendees.
  1. Recording, Live Streaming, and Videotaping. Participants may not record or broadcast audio or video of sessions at Alliance Events.
  1. In addition to the requirements and prohibitions set forth in this Section 3, ALLIANCE may also exclude any prospective participant from registering for or participating in any Event, at ALLIANCE’s sole discretion.
  1. Reporting an Incident or violations of this Policy:
    • If you have a complaint or concern about harassment, discrimination, bullying or any other conduct which may violate the Alliance Code of Conduct, we encourage you to tell an Alliance event staff member, Alliance security personnel or conference facility security personnel immediately. You may also notify us via email at or by calling this number (202) 262-2615. You may request that your report remain confidential and only be shared with those on a “need to know” basis.
    • When taking an in-person report, our team will ensure you are in a safe location and cannot be overheard. The Alliance staff member may involve other team members to ensure your report is managed properly. Once safe, we’ll ask you to convey the specific circumstances. While this can potentially be upsetting, we’ll give you the patience and respect you deserve; and bring along someone to help support you if you desire. You will not be asked to confront any individual and all our communications will be confidential and only be shared with those on a “need to know” basis.
    • Notifying the Alliance staff or onsite Security does not constitute or replace notification to local law enforcement. This Code of Conduct does not replace rules posted by conference facility, official conference hotels or any rules that are part of the Alliance’s contracts with its vendors, exhibitors and/or sponsors.
