Code of Conduct

UNWRAP. believes our community should be truly open for everyone. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, or religion. This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participant behavior as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior. We invite all sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, media, exhibitors, and other participants to help us realize a safe and positive conference experience for everyone. All determinations of appropriate or inappropriate behavior are in UNWRAP.’s sole discretion, and the decision(s) of the UNWRAP. representatives will be final.

  • Failure to obey any rules or regulations of the event or its vendors.

Scope: We expect all event participants (including UNWRAP. employees, moderators, attendees, vendors, sponsors, speakers, and volunteers) to uphold the principles of this Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct covers all UNWRAP. events (virtual or in-person) and all related events (social or otherwise). UNWRAP. employees participating in virtual events must continue to abide by all company policies at all times.

Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior: Unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated, whether by other attendees, media, speakers, volunteers, organizers, venue staff, sponsors, or exhibitors.

Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in unacceptable behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the conference without warning or refund.

What to Do If You Witness or Are Subject to Unacceptable Behavior: If you are subject to unacceptable behavior, notice that someone else is being subjected to unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify a conference organizer as soon as possible. All reports will remain completely confidential.

The UNWRAP. team will be available to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, to provide escorts, or to otherwise assist those experiencing unacceptable behavior to feel safe for the duration of the conference.
