Code of Conduct
One of BBTB’s core values is the dignity, diversity, and inclusion of everyone with whom we interact. All participants at BBTB events are required to adhere to BBTB’s code of conduct, as described below. This includes booksellers, exhibitors, speakers/presenters, guests, sponsors, volunteers, and all affiliated attendees.
This code of conduct expressly recognizes harassment, assault, aggression, and intimidation are unacceptable. These behaviors can be related to, but are not limited to, verbal or written comments about: race, color, religion, ethnicity, national origin or ancestry, medical conditions, age, body size, sexual orientation, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, or related situations), gender identity or presentation, military service, or differing physical or mental abilities. Harassment includes any behavior that a reasonable person would find intimidating, hostile or offensive, such as lewd, overtly sexual disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
BBTB takes any form of harassment very seriously. Accordingly, participants who engage in inappropriate behavior, in the judgment and discretion of BBTB, may be asked to stop; may be expelled from a BBTB event; and may be prevented from attending future BBTB events. BBTB will accept no liability for other expenses incurred by expelled attendees.
If you are being harassed or observe someone else being harassed, please notify BBTB event organizers immediately.
