EVENT CODE OF CONDUCT
Communitech’s True North Waterloo brings the best entrepreneurs, innovators, and thought leaders to connect, learn and help shift the power and control of technology in the right direction. However, it is not a place for behavior that is intentionally inappropriate, off-topic, disruptive, or abusive.
Inappropriate behavior is defined as any form of verbal, physical or written abuse, use of derogatory or discriminatory language, gestures or actions, any form of harassment, racism, sexism, or any other targeted comments which are intended to cause personal offense to another participant either in-person at an event or through social media channels, or the violation of any local, provincial, or federal laws.
At its discretion, Communitech may take action to address any individual(s) or group(s) it believes to have undertaken any inappropriate behavior, as outlined above, including but not limited to cancelling event registration without a refund.
If you believe you have observed or are a victim of any of the inappropriate behaviors described above, please contact TrueNorthInfo@communitech.ca immediately. Reminder that notifying Communitech does not replace a notification to local law enforcement and Communitech’s process may not readily meet the immediate need under the circumstances. You should feel free to take the appropriate actions under the circumstances, including contacting us in regards to emergencies, immediately dialing 9-1-1, and for non-emergencies, reaching out to the Waterloo Regional Police Department at (519) 653-7700.
If you have any further questions with regards to our Code of Conduct, please contact us at TrueNorthInfo@Communitech.ca.
