Code of Conduct

Our Congress is dedicated to providing a harassment-free and safe Congress experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of Congress Participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any Congress venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online or social media. Congress Participant violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the Congress without a refund at the discretion of the Congress Organisers.

All Participants (attendees, speakers, guests, sponsors, exhibitors media, suppliers and volunteers) at the International Congress of Actuaries 2023 (ICA2023) are required to agree with this Code of Conduct. Congress Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all Participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

A Participant asked to stop any harassing behaviour is expected to comply with any directives issued by the congress organiser immediately.

If a Participant engages in harassing behaviour, the Congress Organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the Congress with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of Congress or venue staff immediately. Congress staff can be identified as they'll be wearing congress branded t—shirts.
