Black Life Coaches Business Strategy Summit
Code of Conduct

Black Life Coaches Business Strategy Summit (BLCSUMMIT) is focused on delivering sales and marketing strategies that cover a range of topics intended to help you create successful, results­-driven digital marketing initiatives.

We value the participation of each member of the coaching community and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout the conference and at all summit events, whether officially sponsored by BLCSUMMIT or not.

To make clear what is expected, all delegates/attendees, speakers, exhibitors, organizers and volunteers at any event are required to conform to the following Code of Conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the conference.

The Short Version

BLCSUMMIT is dedicated to providing a harassment­free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form.

All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience, including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks.

Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Behave professionally. Remember that harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate for BLCSUMMIT.

Recording video and audio of speakers and presentations is prohibited. However, pictures are allowed.

Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave the conference without a refund at the sole discretion of the conference organizers.

Thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly event for all.

The Longer Version

Harassment includes offensive communication related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, 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.

Sponsors and exhibitors are also subject to the anti-­harassment policy. In particular, sponsors and exhibitors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Sponsor and exhibitor staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

Be careful in the words that you choose. Remember that sexist, racist, and other exclusionary jokes can be offensive to those around you. Excessive swearing and offensive jokes are not appropriate for BLCSUMMIT.

Please do not record video or audio of speakers and presentations on stage at BLCSUMMIT. You are, however, allowed to take photos during the presentations.

If a participant engages in behavior that violates this code of conduct, the event organizers may provide a warning to the offender or ask the offender to leave the conference with no refund.

Contact Information

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff. You may also contact hotel staff and ask to be put in touch with the conference coordinator.

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel or venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.
