Reminder: Know your GDC 2014 Code of Conduct

Meggan Scavio, GM of GDC events and all-around Boss Lady, takes a moment to detail the official code of conduct for GDC and all of its related events.
[Meggan Scavio, GM of GDC events and all-around Boss Lady, takes a moment to detail the official code of conduct for GDC and all of its related events.] With Game Developers Conference 2014 just around the corner, I thought it would be a good time to remind everyone of a certain set of rules we have established for the event. Last year, we formalized the GDC Code of Conduct, and I'd like you to take a moment to familiarize yourself with the details. Our intention is for GDC to be a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment for all regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, or religion. We will not tolerate behavior that suggests otherwise. Everyone is welcome at GDC and that means we expect each attendee/exhibitor/media/speaker/volunteer/staff member/vendor to behave respectfully and considerately. All instances of reported unacceptable behavior will be investigated and may result in confiscation of one's conference pass. In other words, if you harass someone, I will take your badge and have security escort you out. And I won't refund your money. Now, I can only claim control over what happens at the official event but I implore everyone to extend basic human decency to offsite activities, namely parties. You might attend some parties during GDC week and you might consume alcohol at these parties. Remember: intimidation, harassment, abuse, discrimination, sexual aggression... these are bad things. Don't do them. Another important part to consider: I can't do anything if the bad behavior isn't reported. If you are the victim of harassment or merely a witness, we can only help if you come forward. But rest assured, all reports are held in the strictest of confidence. So take a moment to read the official Code of Conduct and then look forward to an amazing week at GDC! Meggan Scavio GM, GDC Events @megganpez
