If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it as soon as possible. Conference staff can be identified by AccuFund name tags and denim shirts. Harassment and other code of conduct violations reduce the value of our event for everyone. We want you to be happy at our event.
You can make a report either personally or anonymously.
You can make an anonymous report by filling out this form.
We can't follow up an anonymous report with you directly, but we will fully investigate it and take whatever action is necessary to prevent a recurrence.
You can make a personal report by contacting a staff member, identified by AccuFund name tags, or AccuSummit denim shirts. Or by emailing us at the summit contact email: Summit@AccuFund.com.
When taking a personal report, our staff will ensure you are safe and cannot be overheard. They may involve other event staff to ensure your report is managed properly. Once safe, we'll ask you to tell us about what happened. This can be upsetting, but we'll handle it as respectfully as possible, and you can bring someone to support you. You won't be asked to confront anyone and we won't tell anyone who you are.
Our team will be happy to help you contact hotel/venue security, local law enforcement, local support services, provide escorts, or otherwise assist you to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.
