MPGC Code of Conduct: MPGC leadership and staff are committed to providing a vibrant learning environment at all of our events, welcoming people from as many diverse backgrounds as possible. We expect our events to be a respectful, harassment-free environment for people of all races, gender and trans statuses, sexual orientation, ability, nationality, ethnicity, socioeconomic status and beliefs.

We’re grateful that our community is positive, friendly and supportive of one another — it’s what makes our events such a draw each year.

In that spirit, the staff, supporters, volunteers, attendees and speakers at MPGC events are expected to:

  • Exercise consideration and respect in your speech and actions.
  • Keep conversations professional, respectful and consider other parties’ points of view. In short, don’t make it personal. Passionate conversations are part of solving problems. Disagreements happen all the time, and are necessary to consider difficult questions.
  • Remember that the boundaries of good taste, humor, personal space and physical interaction differ from person to person; if you sense someone feels uncomfortable — whether they explicitly state it or not — be respectful of those boundaries.
  • Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory or harassing behavior. Harassment and inappropriate behavior may include, but are not limited to:
    • Sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic or otherwise discriminatory jokes or language physical intimidation, stalking or following sustained disruption of talks or events.
    • Posting or displaying sexually explicit or violent material; if for any reason you may need this material for an educational session, please contact MPGC staff first and we can discuss how to give an appropriate warning to participants.
    • Unwelcome sexual attention. This includes sexualized comments or jokes; inappropriate touching, groping and unwelcomed sexual advances.
    • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.

Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants. Alert emergency services if you notice what you assess to be a dangerous situation or someone in distress. For other violations of this Code of Conduct, you can contact us at office@mnpgc.org.

PCI Compliance: Please do not email forms with credit card information. To protect your data and to comply with PCI standards, the MPGC office will not accept emailed credit card information.

Photo/Audio/Video Release: Registration for or attendance at this event acknowledges consent to be recorded or photographed. We reserve the right to use any photograph/video taken at our events, without the expressed written permission of those included within the photograph/video. We may use the photograph/video in publications or other media material produced, used or contracted including but not limited to: brochures, invitations, books, newspapers, magazines, television, websites, etc. To ensure the privacy of individuals, images will not be identified using full names or personal identifying information without written approval from the photographed subject.
