The Center for Biodiversity and Conservation (CBC) at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) works to promote a welcoming environment at its meetings, whether in virtual or physical spaces, that is safe, collaborative, supportive, and productive for all attendees, including volunteers, exhibitors, and service providers, and that values the diversity of views, expertise, opinions, backgrounds, and experiences reflected among the conference attendees. To that end, we expect all participants—attendees, speakers, mentors, and volunteers—to follow the Code of Conduct during the conference. This includes conference-related social events, and in related online communities and social media. All forms of communication among SCCS-NY participants during the meeting are considered within the scope of the conference, and thus fall under the jurisdiction of the Code of Conduct. These include public and private communications in virtual conference rooms, via electronic chat functions (e.g., Q/A box, Zoom Chat), emails, texts, social media, phone calls, and other forms of written, verbal, and non-verbal (including visual) communication.
If you are the subject of unacceptable behavior, have witnessed any such behavior, or have any other concerns relating to unacceptable behavior, please immediately notify a CBC staff member listed in the program by email or phone. Screenshots or any evidence of the concern is helpful but not required.
