During our conference, we attach great importance to recognizing discriminatory structures and unequal power relations and minimizing them as far as possible. Our aim for the conference is to be mindful and respectful of one another. Our aim is to create a space in which everyone feels safe and comfortable. With our awareness concept, we take a firm stand against all forms of discrimination, boundary violations and violence. We recognize that unequal power relations prevail in our world, leading to privileges and disadvantages. A conscious and critical approach to these power relations is a continuous learning process. As an organizational and awareness team, we strive to find ways and strategies to reduce these inequalities and would also like to invite all participants to participate. It is our shared responsibility not to let discriminatory speech and actions go unnoticed and to critically question our own behavior.
In order to achieve this goal, we have put together an awareness team that will be available throughout the conference. If you experience or observe discrimination or a transgression of boundaries, you can contact the team at any time. You can recognize the awareness team by their pink safety vests and contact them at the following phone number: +49 15788492644 (Ananya, she/her); +49 17610637711 (Anna, she/her); +49 15755841007 (Jan, he/him).
We also provide a safe retreat room that you can use at any time if you need to. Should you wish to make use of this, you can also contact the awareness team.
We are aware that, as an awareness team, we do not have comprehensive experience and knowledge of all forms of discrimination. However, if there is a need, we can provide you with the contact information of cooperation partners who have different backgrounds of experience in connection with discriminatory practices in society. We are aware that we are not without faults and are therefore open to comments and criticism. You can send us your feedback at any time by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can leave your feedback anonymously in our feedback box at the registration table on site.
In the case of discriminatory behavior, a mindful and empathetic response is important to us. The focus is on the perspective of the person concerned and only they themselves define their own boundaries and the violation of boundaries they have experienced. The awareness team will work with the person concerned to agree on possible consequences and act solely with their needs in mind. We have clear rules against discrimination and boundary violations at the conference. Serious offenses can lead to exclusion in order to ensure an environment that is as free of discrimination as possible. The responsibility for the well-being of all participants lies with all of us.
It is generally not possible to tell which pronouns people use. The use of incorrect pronouns should be avoided during this conference in order to ensure respectful and considerate interactions. In order to ensure the correct form of address, we would ask all participants to fill in the appropriate pronouns on their name badge when registering and to wear them during the conference. We ask everyone to respect how a person wishes to be addressed.
