Code of Conduct

We have always taken it for granted that BOU events are safe for all participants, but in light of difficulties experienced by other societies, we have drawn up this simple code for all BOU events.

We welcome everyone to BOU events, be these in person at our conferences, meetings and workshops, or online events such as Twitter conferences.

We work hard to engender and promote a welcoming environment that is collaborative, supportive and engaging for everyone involved. Our events provide opportunities to share, develop and broaden viewpoints in a safe and inclusive environment.

We celebrate diversity in all its forms and expect that all our participants are respectful and considerate of each other, that they provide supportive critique, and embrace the multitude of opinions that are on offer.

If you have any concerns, or feel that any participant of an event has breached this code, or have suggestions for how we can make our events more inclusive and productive, please contact any member of the BOU staff, BOU’s Meetings Committee or the event organisers (listed in all event delegate packs).

During an event, please report any incident as soon as you feel able, to allow us to act upon your concerns. Any reports will be handled in confidence.

Named contacts for each event will be detailed in the delegate pack distributed to delegates in advance of each meeting. This will also be displayed at the event registration desk.
