Code of Conduct

MSF is dedicated to providing a welcoming, harassment-free environment for everyone, regardless of age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, physical appearance, race, ethnicity, and religious beliefs. Our community will not tolerate harassment in any form. Sexual language, unwelcome advances, and discriminatory or offensive speech is not appropriate for any of our events, or online media.

Any attendee, MSF employee, volunteer, speaker, sponsor or partner who does not abide by this Code of Conduct may be asked to leave the event at the discretion of the event organizers. In the case that an attendee is expelled, refunds will not be granted.

By participating in MSF, all attendees, speakers, sponsors, staff, exhibitors, and volunteers must abide by the Code of Conduct. This code will be enforced throughout the event. We expect understanding and support from all participants to ensure a safe environment for all involved. This Code of Conduct applies to all workshops, sessions, events, and online activities.
