The Inside/Outside Innovation Summit is for everyone.  It is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion.

Don’t harass people. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form.

Communicate appropriately. All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate.

Stop immediately. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior, whether by other attendees or event staff, are expected to comply immediately.

Handle situations appropriately. Try to address problems immediately, directly, and tactfully.

Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Behave professionally. Remember that harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate.

Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave the Summit at the sole discretion of the conference organizers. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact Brian Ardinger, Susan Stibal or a member of the conference staff. Conference staff will do what is necessary to help participants.  We value your attendance.
