Code of Conduct - Inventures

Be Kind. Always.

Inventures is an opportunity for startups, scaleups, investors, and thought leaders to come together in an atmosphere of mutual respect and integrity. Inventures is committed to our core principles of equality, diversity, and inclusion. As a participant of Inventures – as an attendee, speaker, sponsor, staff, exhibitor, or in any other way – you agree to personal conduct that aligns with this commitment.

Zero-Tolerance Harassment Policy

Our goal is to provide an experience that is respectful to all with zero-tolerance of harassment in any form – in person or online via the Crowd Compass app – as defined and regulated under Canadian law. This includes but is not limited to verbal comments concerning race, gender, sexual orientation, ability, physical appearance, religion, intimidation and stalking, and inappropriate or unwanted physical contact. Similarly, sexual imagery or language is not appropriate or tolerated in any aspect of Inventures, including conference sessions.

Communication at all Inventures venues and conference-related events is expected to be professional.

Inventures reserves the right to respond to reported or observed acts of harassment in contravention of this code. This could include removal of your Inventures Badge with no refund and banning from participating in future Inventures events.

Notifying Inventures (by email) of harassment experienced or observed does not replace notification of local law enforcement.
