All participants, including, but not limited to, attendees, speakers, volunteers, exhibitors, KMA staff, board members, and others are expected to abide by this Meeting Safety & Responsibility Policy. This Policy applies to all KMA meeting-related events, including those held in conjunction with KMA events, in public or private facilities.
KMA has zero-tolerance for any form of discrimination or harassment in any form, including but not limited to sexual harassment by participants or our staff at our meetings. This policy also covers any virtual meetings hosted by the association.
Examples of unacceptable behavior include, but are not limited to, verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, national origin, inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images in public spaces or in presentations, or threatening, cyber-bullying, or stalking any attendee, speaker, volunteer, exhibitor, KMA staff or board member, or other meeting guests.
Physical or verbal abuse of any attendee, speaker, volunteer, exhibitor, KMA staff or board member, or other meeting guest or disruption of presentations at sessions, during speakers, or at other events organized by KMA will not be tolerated.
If you experience harassment or hear of any incidents of unacceptable behavior, KMA asks that you inform either Lisa Dodson, Executive Director, firstname.lastname@example.org or 316.978.6535, or Jamin Landavazo, Assistant Director, email@example.com so that we can take the appropriate action.
