CODE OF CONDUCT
Women’s Neuronetwork (WNN) aims to provide a welcoming and supportive community committed to enhancing collaboration and academic excellence among neuroscientists who identify as women. In this spirit, we encourage all participants to contribute in fostering a positive and professional environment for everyone involved, regardless of background or identity. All members, participants, and speakers are asked to abide by the following Code of Conduct, which will be enforced by WNN coordinators to ensure a safe and enjoyable environment for all. To foster a positive and professional environment, we encourage the following kinds of behaviour in all platforms and events:
Use welcoming and inclusive language.
Always engage in interactions with any WNN member that is respectful of different perspectives and experiences.
Show courtesy and professionalism in all interactions and communications with WNN members and speakers.
Unacceptable behaviour and harassment in any form will not be tolerated. Harassment includes, but is not limited to:
Verbal aggression or inappropriate physical contact
Deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following
Disruption of talks or other events
Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above-mentioned behaviour
Coordinators and speakers are also expected to follow the Code of Conduct. Participants asked to stop any harassing or disrespectful behaviour are expected to comply immediately. WNN coordinators may seek action to address anything designed to disrupt events or make the environment hostile for any participants. Participants that continue to engage in offensive or harmful behaviour will, at the discretion of the coordinators, face a temporary or permanent ban from participating as a member of WNN, which includes participation in future events.
If you are being harassed, observe another participant being harassed, or have any other concerns, please report it as soon as possible to WNN coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org.
