JACMUN 2023 Equity and Safety
On behalf of the secretariat and staff of JACMUN 2023, we welcome you to our conference! We want to make sure everyone has an amazing time, feels included, comfortable and accommodated, so below are our expectations of everyone involved in JACMUN 2023. Please note, if there are any accommodations JACMUN can provide, please let us know and we will do our best to make it happen (within reason). Please let us know ahead of time so we can make arrangements.
JACMUN has a zero tolerance policy for any form of bullying, discrimination or sexual harassment. We would also like to remind delegates that these issues can take place online, and these will also be taken seriously. Whether it be on Slack, Instagram, Snapchat, or any other social media platforms, any inappropriate or disrespectful behaviour on a digital platform throughout the duration of the conference, including outside of designated conference time, is considered bullying, discrimination or sexual harassment and will be addressed the same way an in-person incident would be.
We also ask delegates to remain respectful of individuals, countries, and characters both in and out of committee. Encouragement of, or in the case of crisis committees crisis notes regarding the harming of any particular people is prohibited. If it is required, we will speak to delegates individually, issue a warning and remind them of our expectations. If issues of bullying, discrimination of sexual harassment occur, as well as if there is recurring issues of respect, they will be brought to the secretariat, who will decide how to proceed. Faculty advisors or head delegates will be informed if an incident occurs. It is possible that the delegate involved may be asked to leave committee, and future committee sessions.
Discrimination against the following will not be acceptable:
Health conditions or impairments (whether visible or invisible).
This list is not exhaustive, so please use your judgement. If it could be deemed offensive, don’t say it.
If you feel you are facing bullying, discrimination, or sexual harassment, please contact the Equity Coordinator, Vanessa Nicolas on Slack, at email@example.com or you can anonymously complete the Equity Report Form found on our website.
If you feel uncomfortable in any way before, during or after JACMUN 2023, you can complete the anonymous report on the Equity Report Form, or at firstname.lastname@example.org. The form and email are only accessible to the Equity Coordinator, Vanessa Nicolas. If the report is regarding this individual and you would like to discuss the issue with another JACMUN Secretariat member, please contact the Secretary General, Sabrina Du.
We thank you all for your cooperation, wish you good luck and hope you have a great time!
