Allen Institute In-person and Virtual Events Code of Conduct
Thank you for your participation in this Allen Institute event.
At the Allen Institute, events, workshops, and symposia are key to our mission of scientific discovery as well as our core principles of big, team, and open science. Our expectation is that these events will take place in an environment where attendees feel safe, are treated with respect and consideration, and do not experience harassment or discrimination in any way.
All participants at Allen Institute sponsored events are expected to treat others in a courteous, collegial, and fair manner at all times.
The following types of behavior will not be tolerated during any Allen Institute sponsored event:
Individuals who engage in unacceptable behaviors may be asked to exit the event and may be banned from future Allen Institute sponsored events.
If an individual experiences or witnesses harassment or misconduct, they can report such behavior to an event staff member and/or submit reports confidentially and anonymously via the Allen Institute‘s reporting service “Report It,” which can be accessed by phone call to 1-877-RPT-LINE or online at Reportit.net (login information: alleninstitute; brain) immediately or as soon as they feel safe to do so. All complaints will be treated seriously and promptly. Confidentiality will be maintained to the extent that it does not compromise the rights of others. If an allegation of misconduct is found to be credible after investigation, the Allen Institute, in its sole discretion, may require the individual responsible for such misconduct to immediately exit the event and may ban the individual from future Allen Institute sponsored events.
