IDIC – Infinite Diversity Infinite Combinations
STARFEST DENVER is determined to offer an environment that is free of any kind of harassment for all convention attendees. StarFest Denver is a place in which everyone plays together in the spirit of mutual trust and respect. Harassment is a form of discrimination that is offensive, impairs morale, undermines the integrity of relationships and causes serious harm to the productivity, creativity and enjoyment of the convention.
All of the convention attendees have the right to be in an environment free from discrimination and harassing conduct, including sexual harassment. Harassment on the basis of race, color, creed, ancestry, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, is not what we are about. Harassment means persistent and unwelcome conduct or actions on any of the bases mentioned above. Harassment may be subtle, manipulative and is not always evident. It does not refer to occasional compliments of a socially acceptable nature. It refers to behavior that is not welcome and is personally offensive. All forms of gender harassment are covered.
VERBAL HARASSMENT: Jokes, insults and innuendos (based on race, sex, age, disability, etc.), degrading sexual remarks, referring to someone as a stud, hunk or babe; whistling; cat calls; comments on a person’s body or sex life, or pressures for sexual favors. NOT TOLERATED!
NON VERBAL HARRASSMENT: Gestures, staring, touching, hugging, patting, blocking a person’s movement, standing too close, brushing against a person’s body. NOT TOLERATED!
If you believe you are being harassed, report it to the nearest STARFEST DENVER staffer. We can’t help you if we don’t know there’s a problem.
Anyone violating the IDIC policy will be asked to leave the convention.
