Conference Code of Conduct

Esri Conferences and Community Spaces


At Esri, we believe geography can make the world a better place. To make it possible for true collaboration, creativity, innovation, and idea exchange to thrive we are committed to facilitating a welcoming and respectful community for all . This Conference Code of Conduct shares our community and applies to all attendees, employees, exhibitors, speakers, sponsors, volunteers, and other participants at Esri-sponsored events. We empower all participants in our community to actively engage in creating a friendly and safe environment for all.
