Report problems immediately

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, we ask you to report it immediately to one of Irit Kahn (conference manager), Jonathan Kahn (organiser), Rhiannan Walton (organiser), or any staff member wearing a black “#dareconf” tee shirt. Staff are always available at the registration desk (or at the door during parties). We will take all reports of harassment seriously, investigate them, and take appropriate action, including asking the person engaging in harassment to leave. We will also contact venue security or the police if appropriate, provide escorts, call taxis, or otherwise ensure that people are safe for the duration of the event.
