This wiki has a list of Conference anti-harassment resources, designed for conference organisers and volunteers to use to create a safer environment for delegates.

Adopting a policy[]

An anti-harassment policy is a core part of creating a safer environment. A policy makes it clear that the conference is willing to act on reports of harassment.

See Conference anti-harassment/Policy for a sample policy you can adapt for your conferences.

Enforcing a policy[]

A duty officer is a conference staffer who is on-hand to do first response to serious incidents, like harassment reports. See Conference anti-harassment/Duty officer for a description of duties and resources.

The key to committing to anti-harassment for your events is responding to reports as quickly as reasonably possible, with the aim of making your event safe from harassment. See Conference anti-harassment/Responding to reports for resources on how to respond when harassment is reported at your event.

Risky events[]

Some conferences or conference events and activities are more risky than others and you may wish to make special arrangements to improve people's safety at these events.
