By coming to Slush, you’re expected to respect all event-goers regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual orientation, disability, or other aspects of what we look like, where we come from, and who we are.

This Code of Conduct applies to all parts of the main event, the side events, and any related activities, whether digital or in person. Slush is meant to be a 100% inclusive experience from the beginning till the end for all of our attendees, employees, and contributors.

Some examples of disrespectful behavior include (but aren’t limited to):

  • Verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, or religion.
  • Deliberate intimidation, discrimination, or bullying.
  • Inappropriate physical contact or any other form of harassment.
  • Sustained disruption of talks or other events.
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.

What happens if you violate the Code of Conduct?

  • You will be expelled from Slush at the discretion of the organizers.

Get it? Perfect! Let’s celebrate entrepreneurship together: equally and respectfully.

See something? Say something. If something disturbing happens to you or you see something inappropriate happening at the event, here’s  what you should do:

  • Reach out to security personnel or Slush Safety mediators at the event (you can recognize them from a safety vest).
  • Go to the Security Helpdesk, located next to the southern cloakroom.
  • Contact Slush Safety mediators in the Slush App chat.
