SCBWI Anti-Harassment Policy

 

Given the current climate, the SCBWI would just like to remind all of our members that we have a firm anti-harassment policy in place.

Here is the official language:

 

SCBWI is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience in its events and activities for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion . We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion,  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 behavior are expected to comply immediately. SCBWI reserves the right to require anyone not complying with the above to depart from any event at which any such activity has been perpetrated and to bar them from future SCBWI events.

 

Any member who experiences harassment at an SCBWI event can issue a complaint to executive director Lin Oliver at linoliver@scbwi.org.
