Code of Conduct

Project Management for Change’s mission is to unleash the boundless potential of the Project Management profession to empower and transform communities around the world. In keeping with that mission, we seek to create a respectful, friendly, and inclusive experience for all participants at all of our events. We do not tolerate harassing or disrespectful behavior, messages, images, or interactions by any event participant, in any form. 

Our goal is to create an environment where everyone feels welcome to participate, speak up, ask questions, and engage in conversation. We invite all participants to help us make this event a safe and positive experience for everyone, regardless of race, gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, national origin, ethnicity, or religion (or lack thereof). So that everyone can focus on the event itself, and the great networking and community richness that happens when we get together in person, we will not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form - in person or online. Examples of harassment include offensive comments, verbal threats or demands, sexualized images in public spaces, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention.

We expect all participants – including nonprofit representatives, speakers, sponsors, project management volunteers, and event staff – to follow this Code of Conduct during the event. This includes related online communities and social media. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Participants violating this Code of Conduct may be expelled from the event without a refund at the discretion of event staff.

Please report any concerns, harassing behavior, or suspicious or disruptive activity to event staff.
