Code of Conduct

Be respectful to each other.

Summer of Biz is committed to creating a safe, respectful and inclusive environment for learning, sharing, and professional networking. We welcome diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and skills, and we strive to remove barriers to participation and to help everyone feel welcome.

Code of Conduct

All registered Students and Employers of the Summer of Biz Programmes, Winter Bootcamp presenters and mentors, event attendees, sponsors, employees and volunteers must agree with the following code of conduct. We invite you to help us make Summer of Biz a place that is welcoming and respectful to all participants, regardless of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, physical appearance, national origin, ethnicity, or religion.

Examples of harassment include offensive comments, verbal threats or demands, sexualised images in public spaces, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention.

We expect all participants, attendees, speakers, sponsors, and volunteers to follow the Code of Conduct during online and real-life Summer of Biz events. This includes related online communities and social media.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Summer of Biz participants violating this Code of Conduct may be removed from the programme without a refund, and/or banned from future events and programmes, at the discretion of Summer of Biz.

If you experience any harassment or are made to feel unwelcome, please bring any concerns to the immediate attention of the event staff, or contact us at hello@summerofbiz.co.nz.


We endeavour to make our event venues wheelchair accessible, and will support accessibility requirements for all attendees. Space is always available as a quiet area for attendees who need a calm space to step out. If you have needs or concerns around participation, please let us know and we will make every effort to help.

Contact, Comments, Feedback

Inclusion is an ongoing process, guided by learning from people about their needs and experiences. We would be very happy to hear from you if you have any concerns, questions, or requests. Please let us know by emailing hello@summerofbiz.co.nz.
