StarSpace46 Code of Conduct

We fully expect all members to be considerate, respectful, and collaborative with each other while at the facility; this includes, but is not limited to, all member events and functions hosted at StarSpace46.

The Code of Conduct “CoC” applies to all “participants”. Participants include attendees, speakers, organizers, co-workers / flex-space members, office members, day pass holders, volunteers, sponsors, vendors, and staff.

The expectations of our Code of Conduct apply at all official and unofficial events that our participants attend alongside each other, as we should look to fellow community members with a sense of security and commonality in even public spaces and gatherings.

 

Anti-Harassment Policy

Harassment of any kind shall never be tolerated, and should always be considered as an “in the eye of the beholder, not the person delivering the message” environment.

We fully understand that particular personal relationships have extended parameters and privileges, but we must also maintain a sense of security for all those entering our facility, as such our policy strictly prohibits the following:

  • Offensive comments related to gender, gender identity/expression, age, sexual orientation, race, religion, disability, body size, and physical appearance

  • Sexualized or otherwise inappropriate images and hateful speech (including in presentations)

  • Harassing or unwanted photography or recording

  • Inappropriate or otherwise unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention of any kind (ex: unwanted hugs, playing with hair, or touching pregnant bellies)

  • Sustained or intentional disruption of talks or events

  • Questions, comments or actions without empathy. (We expect all words and actions to be rooted in thoughtfulness and conducive to positive growth)

  • Any other harassing, abusive, discriminatory, or derogatory conduct
