Conduct

The sabermetrics community is a collaborative group of people who share ideas, information, curiosity, and resources. We at Saberseminar wish to propagate that spirit of community and collaboration, and ask our participants to help us achieve a respectful, safe, and positive experience for all.

We don’t condone harassment or offensive behavior, at Saberseminar or in the greater baseball community, and we are dedicated to providing a harassment-free and inclusive event for everyone at Saberseminar, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of Saberseminar participants in any form at any Saberseminar venue.

We assume that our participants are well-intended, intelligent individuals who can create a welcoming, inclusive community; to this end, at Saberseminar, you agree to:
– Respect the boundaries of other participants
– Be considerate and respectful of all community members
– Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and words
– Look out for one another, and speak up if you observe harassing behavior

Again, as well-intended, intelligent individuals, we assume participants recognize what constitutes inappropriate behavior, but to be clear, these behaviors don’t belong at Saberseminar:
– verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion, and/or nationality
– sexual images in public spaces
– deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following
– inappropriate physical contact
– unwelcome sexual attention
– advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior
– Failure to obey any rules or regulations of the event venue

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately, and participants who engage in harassing behavior may be expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the organizers.

If you have been involved in or have witnessed an incident at Saberseminar that violates the Code of Conduct, please let Chuck Korb, Dan Brooks, or Alan Nathan know immediately. Reports will be kept confidential, and Saberseminar will investigate reported incidents with discretion and confidentiality. You may also anonymously email saberseminar@gmail.com with any conduct related issue. Saberseminar reserves the right to bar any person who violates our Code of Conduct from attending Saberseminar.
