HARASSMENT & DISCRIMINATION POLICY
Mayhem Gaming Convention is dedicated to providing a harassment and discrimination-free convention experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion or group affiliation. We do not tolerate harassment of convention attendees in any form. Convention attendees violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the convention, without a refund, at the discretion of the Mayhem Gaming Convention staff. Offenders may be banned from future conventions at the discretion of the Mayhem Gaming Convention
Harassment includes verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion or group affiliation. Harrassment may include deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Discrimination includes interfering with, or preventing, someone from fully participating in any event or activity at Mayhem Gaming Convention based on gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion or group affiliation.
Participants asked to stop any harassing or discriminatory behavior are expected to comply immediately. Vendors, are also subject to the anti-harassment & discrimination policy.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the convention organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the convention with no refund. If local laws or ordinance are deemed to have been broken Mayhem Gaming Convention will refer the matter to local law enforcement.
If you are being harassed or discriminated against, notice that someone else is being harassed or discriminated against, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of convention staff immediately so that they may address the situation. Convention staff can be identified by their Mayhem Gaming Convention staff shirts and badges. Convention staff can usually always be found at the Registration Desk.
Convention staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment or discrimination to feel safe for the duration of the convention. We value your attendance.
