Code of Conduct

BioCanRx expects all participants of BioCanRx events and workshops to follow the principles outlined in BioCanRx's Code of Conduct. Participants asked to stop any harassing or discriminatory behaviour are expected to comply immediately. BioCanRx may take action to address any action that disrupts the event or makes the environment hostile for any participants.

Some examples of unacceptable behaviour include:

  • Bullying: any physical, verbal, and non-verbal conduct that is malicious or insulting such as threatening or putting people down.
  • Harassment of any kind: unwanted physical, verbal, or non-verbal conduct that violates a person's dignity or creates an intimidating, hostile, degrading, uncomfortable, or toxic environment.
  • Discriminatory behaviour: treating people poorly based on facets of identity including but not limited to race, gender identity, disability, age, religion, sexual orientation etc.
  • Microaggressions: obvious or subtle, direct or indirect behaviours and comments which reference an individual's personal identity
  • Profanity

If a participant or group of participants engages in harassing or discriminatory behaviour, BioCanRx retains the right to take any actions to keep the event a welcoming environment. This includes warning the offender, excluding them from the conference with no refund and refusing their participation at future BioCanRx events depending on the severity of the violation.

If you experience or witness any unacceptable behaviour at a BioCanRx event or workshop please alert BioCanRx immediately by either informing a BioCanRx staff member in person or by emailing our Director of Scientific Affairs and Training Programs, Dr. Megan Mahoney, at [email protected] with the details of the incident.
