Safety & Comfort at Our Events
Glasgow Skeptics aims to be an inclusive organisation, welcoming attendees from all backgrounds, ethnicities, and genders. We reserve the right to remove any attendee whose continued presence represents a real or perceived threat to the smooth running of our events, or the security and comfort of other attendees. We aim to promote an environment where everyone is able to put their views across and enjoy our events; and as such we will not tolerate harassment* or abuse of either speakers or attendees, nor willful disruption of events. Anyone found to be harassing, abusing or in any way intimidating to others will be asked to leave.
If at any stage you feel you need to report such incidents you can approach a member of our team, or another regular you trust.
We will deal with all concerns and complaints swiftly and sensitively and support attendees if they feel further action or support is necessary. You can contact us via email if you would prefer not to raise the issue face to face.
The same ethos applies to any online interaction. Anyone found to be behaving inappropriately on any of our online presences (website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.) will be ejected/blocked/muted as appropriate. Once again, we encourage anyone who has been subject to such behaviour to report it to us immediately.
Remember: Respect people, challenge ideas
* Harassment refers to actions or words that are, or could be seen as discriminatory or inappropriate toward people based on gender, race, sexual orientation, gender-identification, age or disability.
