This Way Up is a Community

All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our conference are required to support the behaviours of the community. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

This Way Up is a place to connect, collaborate and discuss the future of our sector. We offer a space where opinions can be expressed and a healthy debate can take place, where we respect each and every single person's opinions and experiences.

This Way Up is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices..i.e. if someone wants to take notes on an iPad, that’s fine, if someone wants to tweet the session, also fine.

We will not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual or aggressive language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be removed from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they will be wearing branded clothing and/or badges.

We value your attendance.
