Code of Conduct

        Backlash is the phenomenon where people with power and privilege believe or claim they are being oppressed, when in fact they are being asked to relinquish or be accountable for some of their power and privilege. To promote a supportive environment, disrespect and backlash have no place at WOWH.

        All conference participants are requested to conduct themselves in a respectful manner. Any participant responsible for creating an uncomfortable, unsafe or disruptive environment may be required to leave to conference. For more information on accessibility, please see the Accountability Statement.
