Code of Conduct

ScanAgile23 Code of Conduct

All members, attendees, organisers, speakers, sponsors and volunteers involved in Agile Finland are required to agree to the ScanAgile23 Code of Conduct. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a respectful, safe and inclusive environment for everybody.

The Quick Version

Be kind to others, show professionalism, respect diversity, and act with inclusion.

The Longer Version


It is the conference organiser’s responsibility to make sure the Code of Conduct is followed and enforced. Conference organisers may remove people who violate the conference’s Code of Conduct.

According to Agile Finland’s enforcement policy, participants are expected to comply immediately when asked to stop harassing behaviour.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. Sponsors should refrain from using sexually explicit images, activities, or other materials. All booth staff (including volunteers) should refrain from wearing sexualised clothing, uniforms and costumes or contributing towards the creation of a sexualised environment in any way.

Suppose a conference participant engages in harassing behaviour. In that case, the conference organisers can take any action they deem appropriate. This includes warning the offender or expelling him or her from the conference without a refund. In addition, anyone seeking reimbursement for expenses or fees when they violate this code of conduct (including speakers) forfeits that right.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the event organisers immediately at

We urge you to contact the organisers at  immediately if you or someone else is being harassed.

All participants are expected to adhere to these rules at all conference venues and conference-related social events.
