Source2Create’s Event Code of Conduct

Whilst we aim to ensure everyone has a great time and gets the most out of our events, it is also important that we ensure there are a few guidelines in place to make Source2Create’s events an awesome experience for all attendees.

Source2Create is intent on creating quality events within safe and respectful environments for all attendees to share knowledge, express their thoughts and opinions and network.  

Our code of conduct requires all attendees and stakeholders to act in a manner that is harassment-free and respectful of people in a public environment, regardless of their gender, intersectionality, race, ability, ethnicity, sexual orientation/ identity, creed, age or social status. 

The code of conduct requires that speakers’ presentations and content offered in the various formats within our events are respectful and devoid of content/images of a sexual or discriminatory nature.

The code of conduct also extends to:

  • inappropriate approaches of a sexual nature and aggressive behaviour
  • offensive comments, questions or posts made on event engagement technology, social media or any other online media platforms

It is our expectation that attendees will act in a responsible manner in regard to alcohol consumption.

It is our expectation that attendees will act in a safe and responsible manner in respect to being healthy and well while attending events and in accordance with COVID19 public health guidelines.

Any attendee that is deemed to be violating the code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from our event without refund, at the discretion of the organisers.

What is harassment? 

  • Harassment includes but is not limited to: verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination (related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion, etc); sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact; unwelcome sexual attention; and advocating for or encouraging any of the above behaviour.

The code of conduct is required for all representatives of Source2Create’s network but also extends to: 

  • Any inappropriate approaches of a sexual nature and aggressive behaviour.

What is the Source2Create protocol for conflict resolution? 

Source2Create follows the conflict resolution process of reporting incidents immediately or escalating it through the conflict resolution framework. 

Please see below the process:

Anyone can report if you believe someone is breaching Source2Create’s code of conduct. Please follow the steps below: 


Please report immediately to a local event organiser (at an event) or Source2Create representative if you are being disrespected, feel unsafe or being harassed, or if you notice that someone else is being harassed.


Please escalate and report to Source2Create by email or informing one of our Source2Create representatives. 

When escalating the issue, please provide as much detail as possible in regards to the incident.

Source2Create’s team will require anyone engaging in harassing behaviour to cease immediately as that is a breach of what Source2Create’s organisation represents. Those sanctions can include reporting to the individual’s organisation and supporting the victim in making informal or formal complaints via that organisation’s processes.

Source2Create is committed to ensuring that you and other attendees experience a positive, enjoyable, and inclusive event when we are hosting events.
