IBA Harassment Policy

IBA conferences and online events provide unrivalled professional development and network-building opportunities for international legal practitioners and their professional associates. As representatives of the global legal profession, delegates and IBA members are expected to maintain the highest levels of propriety and behaviour. As representatives of their firms, companies and organisations, delegates are reminded that they should maintain the same high standards of behaviour that are required as a representative or employee of that organisation, when attending online events as a virtual conference delegate or member of the IBA. This includes adhering to any relevant code of conduct of the organisation that they are representing, or their regulating body, during the virtual conference.

The IBA values the participation of every delegate and member of the IBA and wants all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all virtual conference attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees, IBA staff and those involved with hosting the events throughout the virtual conference and at all virtual conference networking opportunities, whether officially organised by the IBA, or by others. All delegates, attendees, speakers, exhibitors, staff and volunteers at any IBA event are required to conform to the IBA Harassment Policy. The IBA will enforce this Policy in relation to matters reported during or after the event, as appropriate.

The IBA is dedicated to providing a harassment-free virtual conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, disability, physical appearance, age, race, colour or nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, marital or civil partnership or other personal attributes. Harassment is unwanted verbal or non-verbal conduct that has the purpose or effect of violating a person’s dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for them. The IBA does not tolerate harassment, bullying or attempted bullying of conference participants, delegates, guests, speakers, exhibitors, or staff in any form. Please be considerate to others and think about the effect your actions would have on others – a single incident could constitute harassment.

All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience, including people of many different cultures, backgrounds, opinions and personal attributes. Please do not insult nor disparage other attendees, and please give consideration to topics that might be offensive to others. Behave professionally.

Remember that discriminatory, sexual or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate. Sexual language, imagery or behaviour are not appropriate. Any unwanted conduct of a sexual nature will constitute harassment.

Attendees violating this Policy may be excluded, at the discretion of the conference organisers, from the remainder of the virtual conference sessions, and further action may be taken in accordance with the Harassment Policy. If members or delegates see or suspect any behaviour that may violate this policy, they should not be afraid to report it.

The full Harassment Policy can be found on the IBA website HERE

Thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly and inclusive virtual conference for all.

As these webinars are online, they may be vulnerable to hacking and abuse from outside parties, and we rely on the provider to ensure the security of their platform . The IBA cannot accept any responsibility for any damage or injury resulting from participating in the Webinars, neither for and not limited to, exposure to indecent, inflammatory, offensive or racist content.

Any views expressed during the sessions by the speakers, moderators or participants are solely based upon personal opinion and should not be taken as professional advice. Furthermore, any opinions are expressly those of the participants and not necessarily the views of the IBA. The IBA takes all possible measures to advise participants beforehand, that they behave in a professional manner, and do not encourage or incite any prejudicial behaviour against individuals, communities, nations, governments, religions or cultures that may cause offence and hurt to others, or encouraging actions that break any laws. However, if this does occur, the IBA will intervene to prevent further occurrences, which could result in participants being restricted from further sessions. In serious cases, offending participants may be banned from all future webinars.
