Through RGD, Canadian designers exchange ideas, educate and inspire,
set professional standards and build a strong, supportive community
dedicated to advocating for the value of design.
At DesignThinkers, we seek to create a harassment-free conference
experience for everyone regardless of gender, gender identity and
expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body
size, race, age or religion. All participants, including speakers, sponsors
and volunteers, are expected to comply with this code of conduct to
ensure a safe and welcoming environment for all in attendance.
Harassment is understood as any behaviour that threatens another
person or group, or produces an unsafe environment including;
deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or
recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate
physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked
to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately or
risk expulsion from the conference without warning or refund.
If a participant feels this code of conduct has been breached, it should
be reported it to an RGD staff member at the RGD Registration Desk as
soon as possible. You may also email us at [email protected]
Thank you for helping us making our event as enjoyable as possible.
