Virtual ANZCA ASM live from Melbourne: 27 April - 4 May 2021

Code of conduct statement

ANZCA is committed to a respectful and safe environment for all interactions inclusive of its conferences and meetings.

Our ASM is governed by all relevant ANZCA policies in relation to professional behaviour and conduct, including in relation to bullying, discrimination and sexual harassment.

Our ASM is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. Sexual language and imagery or the use of personal photos without permission is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media.

Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.

Respectful behaviour is expected at all times from all participants. Appropriate behaviour respects difference and diversity, respects privacy, and handles disagreement politely. Honesty and fair dealing is expected.

Obtaining consent to quote others, use presentations or take photographs is appropriate and shows the respect expected of participants of the ASM.

If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it as soon as possible to a member of the events team who will escalate to the Executive Director, Fellowship Affairs Jan Sharrock, DPA ASMs Associate Professor Nicole Phillips or a member of the ANZCA events team.

Alternatively you can make a report via email here. All personal details will remain confidential, issues raised will be investigated and necessary action taken to prevent a recurrence.
