Over the last 4 or 5 years, Codes of Conduct have become pretty important at events (both digital and in person) to govern how people should behave. Having a Code of Conduct can help foster an inclusive environment for your event. A Code is only as good as having a system in place to enforce it when an adverse event occurs. At the small Tech Conference I Direct in Colorado - we adopted a code and have modified it several times since 2013 but only this year had our official contacts train on what to do if something is reported. I'd love to hear about other's experiences with utilizing a Code, what challenges you have had, and how it has changed the culture of your group or event.
I wasn't there for this, but I think a great deal of thought went into the Knowbility AccessU code of conduct: https://knowbility.org/programs/accessu/code-of-conduct/

We put a Code of Conduct in place for attendees of our The Digital Nonprofit conference in Vancouver. We adapted it from the Geek Feminism template.
I really like the Geek Feminism model because it gives attendees clear guidance for reporting and next steps.
