Harassment policy

The Discworld Convention is dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable Convention experience for everyone. Harassment of any kind, including but not limited to unwelcome attention, verbal harassment, deliberate intimidation, stalking, or unwelcome physical contact - let alone physical assault or battery - will not be tolerated.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the Convention Committee immediately (Go To Ops or look out for one of the distinctive polo shirts).

Your reports of harassment or similar activity will be recorded and the Chairman will be informed. The Convention Committee will discuss the situation internally, as well as with any relevant parties, and a decision will then be made on what, if any, action is to be taken.

Convention participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the Convention at the discretion of the Convention Committee.

In addition to dealing with the harassment quickly and decisively ourselves, Convention staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel security and/or the Police, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the convention.
