This Harassment Policy is meant to guide the actions of members, attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, vendors, and others that are representing CoreNet Global or participating in CoreNet Global events (collectively referred to as “Participants”).  It is meant to be applied during all CoreNet Global Summits, Chapter events, meetings, conferences, forums, and meeting-related events, including those sponsored by organizations other than CoreNet Global but held in conjunction with CoreNet Global events in which they participate (collectively referred to as “CoreNet Global Events”). 

The term “Harassment” as used in this Harassment Policy covers a wide range of behaviors of an offensive nature. It is commonly understood as behavior that disturbs, threatens or upsets the recipient, and it is characteristically repetitive. Sexual harassment refers to persistent and unwanted sexual advances (actions or spoken), directed at an individual. Harassment can include but is not limited to: comments that are lewd, lascivious, demeaning or derogatory, unwelcome discussion of sexual orientation or gender identity, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following, inappropriate physical contact or unwelcome sexual attention, including any specific activity for which affirmative consent was not requested and given.


  1. Expected Behavior
    1. Participants are expected to at all times uphold the reputation of CoreNet Global and the dignity of membership therein while representing CoreNet Global or attending CoreNet Global Events.  As such, all members, and participants, attendees, invitees, and vendors at events and meetings shall be treated with respect and consideration.
    2. Participants shall be considerate, respectful, and collaborative, communicating openly with respect for others, and critiquing ideas rather than individuals. 
    3. At all times during meetings and events, the specific rules and policies of the meeting, event, venue, hotel, or CoreNet Global contracted facilities shall be respected in their entirety.
  1. Unacceptable Behavior
    1. CoreNet Global does not tolerate any form of harassment or discrimination by its Participants on the basis of, but not limited to: sex, sexual orientation, race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, handicap, citizenship, marital status, veteran status or any other basis prohibited by law.  As such, CoreNet Global expects all Participants to not engage in any form of harassment of this aforementioned nature.      
    2. Harassment and discrimination are prohibited wherever and whenever representation of CoreNet Global is being performed or at any meeting a Participant is attending, whether at CoreNet Global offices, in another location during meeting or event or at a CoreNet Global-sponsored social event.
    3. Any unprofessional, or inappropriate, conduct whether or not it is unlawful harassment or discrimination is contrary to this Policy and is taken very seriously by CoreNet Global.
  1. Consequences
    1. Any individual requested to stop any unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.
    2. At any CoreNet Global event or meeting, CoreNet Global may take any action deemed necessary and appropriate, including removal of a Participant, for any unacceptable behavior as described above. 
    3. Any unacceptable behavior may also be remedied by CoreNet Global in a manner reasonably believed to eliminate the possibility of the behavior happening again including, but not limited to, future curtailment of the violator’s rights to participate at events as well as suspension/termination of membership.
  1. Reporting:
    If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, you are not required to, but you are encouraged to report potential incidents and event staff or event leadership, who will take seriously all concerns brought to them. Harassment reduces the value of our events for everyone.
