2021 Wetland Science Conference Community Agreement & Code of Conduct As a community, we agree to ensure the virtual experience is enjoyable, safe, and welcoming to everyone and commit to:
Be kind. All participants are encouraged to connect with other attendees, post to discussion boards, use the chat feature, engage in breakout sessions, and get the most out of what the platform has to offer. Offensive, divisive, or profane language is not permitted and will be removed.
Be patient. This virtual event is new to all of us, including WWA staff, speakers, and exhibitors. Technical issues may arise, and we ask that you be gracious while we navigate this new landscape. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
Be accountable. We are here to learn from & teach others, connect with our peers, and build community around wetland conservation and management. This virtual event is not intended to be a platform for politics.
Code of Conduct This Code of conduct was adopted to promote diversity and create an inclusive, supportive, and collaborative environment at the 2021 Wetland Science Conference hosted by Wisconsin Wetlands Association (WWA). WWA and the conference advisory panel value the diversity of views, expertise, opinions, backgrounds, and experiences reflected among participants. We are committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment for all participants. The Wetland Science Conference can serve as an effective forum to consider and debate different viewpoints related to wetland topics in a respectful and fair manner.
All 2021 Wetland ScienceConference participants—including, but not limited to, attendees, speakers, volunteers, exhibitors, administrative staff, members of the media, vendors, and service providers (called “participants” for the rest of this document for simplicity)—are expected to abide by this Code of Conduct.
Treat all participants with kindness, respect, and consideration, valuing a diversity of views and opinions, including those you may not share.
