Code of Conduct

Dutch Game Garden supports the game industry by creating job opportunities and providing economic support. To do so, we initiate in-person events and online networking opportunities. In all our activities and events, we stand for an environment that is inclusive, respectful and considerate, safe and friendly to and for all participants. To ensure this, we require all speakers, hosts, participants, volunteers and organizers to adhere to our Code of Conduct.

Let’s create an environment that is:

Inclusive: we welcome and support people from all backgrounds and ensure a safe and welcoming environment for attendees, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, disability or physical appearance.

Respectful and considerate: giving and receiving feedback on your work, meeting new people and having discussions around different viewpoints is of great value when it is done in a respectful, professional and considerate way. We require all communication to be appropriate and professional towards attendees, including different backgrounds and cultures. Sexual language, personal attacks and disrespectful feedback are not appropriate.

Safe: we support people to come together to learn and to grow. A safe space is absolutely necessary for that. Harassment, discriminatory jokes, exclusionary behavior or encouraging any of these kinds of behaviors aren’t acceptable. All behavior should be professional and respectful to other attendees.

To conclude: at all Dutch Game Garden events and gatherings, we communicate and behave in service of the creation of a friendly, supporting space where personal and professional growth can happen.

Any attendee violating this Code may be asked to leave the event, without refund, at the sole discretion of the Dutch Game Garden staff.
