The DesignUp Code of Conduct

We’re committed to providing a safe place for you to learn, to share learning, to inspire and be inspired

We want DesignUp events—irrespective of how small or big they are, and our online space — to be safe places for sharing and learning.

We celebrate diversity and hope and expect thoughtful, considerate and respectful behaviour from all. And we know you too share these beliefs.

Our code of conduct applies to every participant, speaker, sponsor, organiser, online users and visitors. Speakers and workshop leaders set the tone for the event and are looked upto for the thought leadership they provide.

We do not tolerate—

  • Demeaning, offensive or derogatory verbal comments, content or depictions (e.g., related to religion, gender, sexual orientation, race, disability, country, ethnicity);
  • Inappropriate physical contact, verbal abuse, deliberate intimidation or stalking or recordings with an intent to harass.

All our attendees, and website visitors are subject to this. Any breach may lead us to remove the person from the event at any point in time, blacklist from future events, report to your sponsor/sponsoring organisation, and block on our website and/or report to social media platforms.

We’re committed to providing a safe place for you to share learning, share inspiration—and to learn and be inspired.
