Patterns Day is an inclusive event based on treating all individuals respectfully, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or software preferences. So please don’t be nasty or mean. Be nice. Be considerate. Be civil. It’s easy.
If you are harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff. Or if you spot me, Jeremy Keith (I’ll be the one introducing the speakers), please don’t hesitate to grab me. If you can’t immediately spot me or a Patterns Day volunteer, please speak to a member of the Duke Of York’s staff and they’ll be able to get hold of me quickly.
You can phone or text me on 07792 069292 but if I’m not responding, Louise Ash will be at the front of house, so if you can’t get hold of me, please speak to her.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
If we ask a participant to stop any harassing behavior, they must immediately comply. If a participant engages in any of the aforementioned behavior, we may take any action we deem appropriate, from warning the offender to immediately expelling the offender from Patterns Day with no refund.
