The RCA Event Organisation Committee is committed to creating an environment that is safe, professional and of mutual trust where diversity and inclusion are valued and where everyone is entitled to be treated with courtesy and respect. It is through the diverse set of skills, personalities and experiences that our community experiences great successes and continued growth. 

As members of the community,
• We pledge to treat all people with respect and provide a harassment- and bullying-free environment, regardless of sex, sexual orientation and/or gender identity, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, nationality, ethnicity and religion. In particular, sexual language and imagery, sexist, racist or otherwise exclusionary jokes are not tolerated.
• We pledge to provide respectful criticisms and feedback in our forums. We pledge to model behaviors that encourage productive discussion for better scientific outcomes, even when there is disagreement, while fully respecting individual differences and preferences.
• We pledge to welcome questions and answer them respectfully, paying particular attention to those new to the community. We realise that including people with a variety of opinions and backgrounds will only serve to enrich our community.
• We pledge to help the entire community follow the code of conduct and to not remain silent when we see violations of the code of conduct. We will take action when members of our community violate this code, such as contacting an organiser or advisor of the conference or talking privately with the person.
• We pledge to respect each other’s privacy and entity to their image and intellectual property. If we wish to share photos, pre-recorded talks or other media of a participant, we will always get the participant’s permission first.

Thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly conference for everyone.
