Description: now more than ever the game industry is aware of the need for safe and effective policies for managing conduct issues within studios and community events. This workshop will guide participants through the process of obtaining and enforcing a code of conduct for their organization. No one ever wants to have to confront harassment issues, but preparing in advance fosters a safer environment for everyone. Throughout this lecture we will provide you with examples of action taken in previous scenarios to make sure you’re prepared in case you ever have to do the same.

Targeted public: event organizers, community organizers and studio managers. Our goal is to provide accessible vocabulary and resources, no previous knowledge required!
