This Code of Conduct applies to all participants in the Association of Schools and Colleges (ASCO) conferences and events. It aims to ensure a positive and enjoyable intellectual, cultural, and social experience for all.
This code expresses values that are already fundamental to all participants. ASCOs conferences and events aim to be inclusive and embrace diversity in all its forms.
The ASCO welcomes participants regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, color, religion, national origin, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, or any other protected characteristics. Therefore, this Conference Code of Conduct sets forth expectations for the conduct of all participants at an ASCO conference or event. Participants are expected, both inside and outside of conferences and events, to express themselves in considerate and respectful ways to others. Equally, they are expected to respond with courtesy and respect to others’ opinions. “Participant” refers to anyone present at an ASCO conference, event, or activity and includes speakers, vendors, venue staff, media representatives, exhibitors, sponsors, volunteers, and all other attendees.
