KWRI Events Code of Conduct


Hold ourselves and each other to the highest standards of integrity and respectful behavior. We all have the responsibility to lead by example and promote an environment where everyone feels safe and is treated with respect.

Bullying, Violence, and Harassment

Event Participants are expected to treat others with dignity, courtesy, and respect. Event Participants are entitled to an experience free from bullying, violence, and harassment, in any form, be it physical, emotional, verbal, or sexual.

This may include, but is not limited to:

  • Inappropriate language or gestures.
  • Threatening or abusive behavior (verbal or physical).
  • Display of offensive or sexually suggestive objects or images.
  • Explicit demands for sexual behavior.
  • Making jokes or derogatory statements that are ethnic, racial, sexual, political, age-related, or disability-related in nature.

We are committed to keeping KWRI events a safe place for all Event Participants. If you think that someone has exhibited any actions or violence or harassment, you are expected to immediately bring this issue to the attention of event support staff. Any acts of bully, violence, harassment (including sexual harassment) or intimidation will not be tolerated, and may result in being removed from the event, and/or referred to local law enforcement.

Respectful Communication

At KWRI, we value professionalism among our staff, which includes demonstrating honesty, respect, integrity, compassion, humility, and accountability, and we expect the same from our community at our in-person and online events. We promote open discussion between Event Participants, as well as listening to and sharing perspectives different to our own.

Drugs and Alcohol

KWRI encourages responsible alcohol consumption at all KWRI events. At no time should Event Participants behave in a manner which is inappropriate. If any Event Participant is found to be overly intoxicated and posing a safety risk, KWRI reserves the right to remove them from the event. Any illicit substances are strictly prohibited at KWRI events.

Diversity and Inclusion

We celebrate the uniqueness that every person brings and recognize that our success is firmly grounded in the richness of diverse thinking and ideas. We aim to foster event environments that reflect and celebrate diversity and unique perspectives that exist in the society we live in.

Fostering Community Involvement

When we bring people together, we create a culture of inclusion and openness. We hope that by building awareness of the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and providing a safe place to speak about it, we encourage healthy conversations that create positive, lasting change. We are proud to work together with our partners that inspire and provide opportunities for those that often need it most.

Health and Safety

KWRI is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all Event Participants. By attending this event you agree to comply with all applicable local health and safety legal requirements.

If you are feeling unwell, please rest up and stay at home so we can continue to keep our fellow event attendees and community safe. In the event of an emergency or security event, Event Participants agree to follow instructions provided by KWRI event personnel.

Other Standards of Conduct

The standards expected of all Event Participants include:

  • To act with integrity, honesty, and professionalism.
  • To not engage in conduct that in the opinion of KWRI causes damage or potential damage to any property or the reputation of KWRI or other Event Participants.
  • At all times, behave in a way that upholds KWRI’s core values, integrity, and good reputation.


Please immediately report any abusive content or behavior that violates this Code to event support staff. If you are on site, event staff can help you contact event security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment or other inappropriate behavior to feel safe for the duration of the event.

Please contact a member of event staff by finding a staff member via their badge or by visiting the customer service desk.
