Code of Conduct
Tabletop Network is dedicated to providing an open and inclusive experience for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, or religion. As such, we do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participant behavior as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
We invite all sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, and other participants to familiarize themselves with this document and help us realize a safe and positive conference for everyone.

4. Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior
Unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated. Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in unacceptable behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the conference without warning or refund.
5. What to Do If You Witness or Are Subject to Unacceptable Behavior
If you are subject to unacceptable behavior, notice that someone else is being subject to unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify a conference organizer as soon as possible.
We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse as much as reasonably possible. At our discretion, we may privately warn third parties about them, or publicly name a person about whom we’ve received harassment complaints, or if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of Tabletop Network members or the general public.
The Tabletop Network team will be available to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, to provide escorts, or to otherwise assist those experiencing unacceptable behavior to feel safe for the duration of the conference. You can report unacceptable behavior to any member of staff.
We expect all conference participants (sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, and other guests) to abide by this code of conduct at all conference venues and conference-related social events.
