The Big Independence Summit is intended to be a space that allows open discussion through respectful, inclusive and equitable treatment of others.
Melin Drafod want to promote a positive atmosphere by asking everyone to:
- Treat all equally and respectfully
- Listen to others’ views and engage constructively with them
- Set an example
- Be committed to helping each other and to be kind
- Respect the environment and the people around you
We believe that everyone has the right to be in a respectful, safer and welcoming environment at the Summit.
We are dedicated to providing an inclusive conference experience for everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship, or language, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, age, religion or economic class.
Discrimination, harassment, bullying and behaviours that are patronising have no place at the Independence Summit, or in any other context, and will not be tolerated.
We require that Summit attendees practice:
- No violence
- No harassment
- No discrimination
- No bullying
- No condescending behaviour
These all apply both online and in-person, and to both formal and informal spaces in and around the Summit, and to electronic forms of communication as well as personal interactions (physical, verbal and non-verbal).
