EB Code of Conduct
Experimental Biology (EB) is committed to providing a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment for all event participants. It is EB’s policy that all forms of discrimination and harassment, sexual or otherwise, are prohibited in any EB events or activities.
EB participants (participants include sponsors, exhibitors, staff, attendees, venue employees and employees from other support suppliers) are expected to help us ensure a safe and positive conference experience for everyone and to abide by this Code of Conduct while attending EB.
- Exercise consideration and respect in your speech and actions.
- Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech.
- Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants.
Experimental Biology is pleased to announce that it will provide ombuds Services at EB 2020, April 4-7, San Diego. This action is taken to support the Conference Code of Conduct and Anti-harassment Policy.
The ombuds will serve as an independent, neutral, off-the-record, and confidential resource for conference attendees to discuss any concerns they may have concerning conference-related behaviors and activities. The ombuds will be able to provide information confidentially and will provide a safe way for people to discuss their concerns in a confidential way to explore options for any further action.
In addition to serving as a resource to assist individuals attending the conference, the ombuds—without breaching the confidentiality of any communications by people using the services—will provide Experimental Biology management with feedback on the nature of issues raised at the conference and any insights or observations about systemic issues relating to the conference.
The ombuds will be available by phone or email from April 2-8, 2020. For questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
