CODE OF CONDUCT
The Books to Kids values the dignity, diversity, and inclusion of everyone with whom we interact. Our safety and anti-harassment policies are critical to ensuring that this core value guides what we do and say. All participants at B2K events are required to adhere to B2K's code of conduct, as described below. This includes attendees, B2K staff, exhibitors, speakers/presenters, guests, sponsors, volunteers, and all affiliated attendees.
B2K is committed to a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of race, sex, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, ethnicity, and religion. We do not tolerate harassment, discrimination, or other unwelcome or unlawful behavior on the basis of any of these characteristics.
Behaviors that violate this policy include, but are not limited to:
● Offensive verbal comments related to any protected category above
● Inappropriate physical contact
● Sexual propositions
● Unwelcome sexual attention
● Off-color or obscene jokes, remarks, or gestures
● Any other words or conduct of a sexual nature that makes the recipient or observer uncomfortable
● Intimidation, stalking, or following
● Sustained disruption of talks or other events
● Unwelcome photography or recording
● B2K expects all event participants to follow established rules throughout both official event offerings and related
social gatherings, including this policy.
B2K takes any violation of this policy very seriously. Accordingly, participants who violate this policy may, in the judgment and discretion of B2K, be asked to stop; may be expelled from an B2K event, without refund if applicable; may be prevented from attending future B2K events; and may have future participation privileges revoked.
If you are being harassed, observe someone else being harassed, or have concerns about potential violations of this policy, please notify B2K event organizers immediately. In the case of an emergency, call 911 or event security. In all other cases, if an appropriate B2K representative is not readily available, you can email and B2K will respond to you as soon as possible.
B2K will take all appropriate action in response to protect anyone affected by violations of this policy.
