Code of Conduct

Nylas Events Code of Conduct

Nylas is committed to creating events where people of every background, gender, ethnicity, religion, race, and sexual orientation feel welcome. Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated.

Treat each other with respect and kindness, and apply the same common-sense behaviors that you would in an inclusive, professional, welcoming workplace.

Attendees violating the guidelines outlined in this document will be asked to leave the conference immediately.

Expectations for attendees at Nylas events:

  1. Attentiveness: Speakers, presenters, and panelists work hard to prepare for each event to deliver the most valuable, useful information. If you’re present at the event, please be exactly that – present. If you need to take a call, please do so in a place that won’t be distracting to others.
  2. Encourage conversation: Every attendee and speaker at Nylas events is a leader in some regard. Lead by example and actively make space in conversation for voices of traditionally marginalized groups and individuals to be heard.
  3. Intelligent debate: Debate is welcome and encouraged  but should remain professional and respectful. Debate ideas, not people.
  4. Zero-tolerance for harassment: If you see inappropriate behavior, please notify a Nylas employee immediately. We’ll have staff present at all times, and we introduce the main point of contact at the beginning of each event.

Examples of unacceptable behavior include but are not limited to: harmful, demeaning, or derogatory language in any setting from anyone, including speakers, staff, volunteers, and attendees.  

If you are subject to or witness unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify a Nylas staff member as soon as possible. Nylas staff will introduce themselves at the beginning of every event and will be accessible throughout the entirety of the event.

Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior

Nylas has a zero-tolerance policy for harassment. Anyone found to be breaking this code of conduct may be removed from the premises immediately without refund and may not return.
