The Organizers uphold these values amongst themselves and their volunteers, and when they engage with third parties. The Organizers expect that guests at all Womin Events will abide by the same standards. Each Womin Event is a safe and inclusive environment that fosters open dialogue and the free expression of ideas, free from harassment, discrimination, and hostile conduct.

This Code of Conduct applies to all attendees, participants, speakers, sponsors, guests, volunteers, contractors, and any other individuals who attend a Womin Event (“Attendees”).
Attendance at a Womin Event
Attendance at a Womin Event is conditioned on an Attendee’s compliance with this Code of Conduct. Any failure to abide by this Code of Conduct can result in the Attendee’s expulsion from the Womin Event. Engaging in prohibited activity may also result in other consequences for the Attendee or the Attendee’s organization.
Attendees at a Womin Event should behave in a manner that reflects the Organizer’s values of respect and inclusion. The following guidelines outline expectations for all Attendees:
- Respect the personal space of fellow Attendees, and employ common courtesies in personal interactions.
- Behave in a professional manner.
- Be considerate of other Attendees and in your presence and communications.
- Promote and encourage the highest level of integrity in the digital commerce industry.

Further, depending on the nature of the activity leading to breach or violation, the Organizers (at their sole discretion) may choose to prohibit the Attendee from attending or participating in future Womin Events.
Neither Attendees nor any sponsor organizations will be entitled to any refund if an Attendee is removed pursuant to the terms of this Code of Conduct.
