Ring of Keys Coalition, Inc. Code of Conduct
By agreeing to become a participant of Ring of Keys, you agree to abide by the Ring of Keys’ Code of Conduct as forth herein.
Ring of Keys will not tolerate the use or support of any hateful content posted on the Ring of Keys’ own website or associated social media accounts that you will be granted access to as a participant, nor will we promote the production of any project containing hateful content.
Ring of Keys supports the freedom of expression in projects that our participants may be a part of, however, we do not and will not support projects that promote or condone violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status, sexual orientation, or gender identity, or projects that incite hatred on the basis of these Protected Groups (“Protected Groups”).
Ring of Keys’ participants will also abide by our Anti-Harassment policy, whether you are interacting on Ring of Keys’ website, associated social media sites, Ring of Keys-sponsored events, or against other participants during the period of a project. Ring of Keys is committed to providing a productive and welcoming environment that is free from discrimination and harassment. Participants are expected to act with courtesy and mutual respect toward each other.
Under this Code of Conduct, harassment in any form is strictly prohibited. Harassment may include, but is not limited to, inappropriate conduct, comment, display, action, gestures, epithets, slurs, negative stereotyping, threatening, intimidating, hostile acts, or denigrating jokes toward an individual or group based on any characteristic of a Protected Group. Sexual harassment is another form of harassment and may involve individuals of the same or different gender. Sexual Harassment is any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that might reasonably be expected or be perceived to cause offense or humiliation. Sexual harassment may include, but is not limited to verbal (sexual innuendoes, suggestive comments, jokes of a sexual nature, sexual propositions, or threats); non-verbal (sexually suggestive objects or pictures, graphic commentaries, suggestive or insulting sounds, leering, whistling, or obscene gestures); and physical (unwanted physical contact, including touching, pinching, coerced sexual intercourse, or assault).
Complaint Reporting Process. If a participant feels that they have experienced harassment of any kind from another participant, it is their duty and responsibility to file a report with Ring of Keys. Upon receipt of a Complaint of alleged harassment in violation of this Code of Conduct, Ring of Keys reserves the right to take any necessary and appropriate action, which may include, but is not limited to, Ring of Keys undertaking a fact-finding exercise; requesting the perpetrator to immediately stop the offending behavior; suspending or terminating the perpetrator’s access to Ring of Keys’ events or inclusion in Ring of Keys; and/or conveying the complaint to any investigative or disciplinary authority with jurisdiction over the person accused of harassment. Ring of Keys will involve only those deemed necessary to the review of the Compliant, and disclosures will only be made on an as-needed basis.
A participant should never knowingly make a false or misleading claim about prohibited conduct.
Threats, intimidation, or any other form of retaliation against a participant who has made a Complaint or provided information in support of a Complaint are prohibited. Ring of Keys will take any reasonable appropriate action needed to prevent and respond to retaliation, in accordance with this Code of Conduct. Such retaliatory action will be seen as a violation of this Code of Conduct and may result in the suspension or termination of the retaliating-participant’s inclusion in the organization.
Fact-Finding: Should the organization receive an incident report related to an alleged violation of this code of conduct, the report shall be brought to the attention of (1) the current Executive Director and (2) the Board of Directors. Collectively this group shall be referred to from this point on as the Investigative Advisory Panel (IAP). Should one or more of the aforementioned parties be cited in the report as the alleged offender, victim, or witness of a violation of the code of conduct, or should they serve as the complainant, they shall be excluded from the IAP. With notice, the involved parties reserve the right to disclose the complainant’s identity.
The IAP will convene to determine the complaint’s relevant clause of the Code of Conduct. Should the IAP identify a relevant and citable clause in the Ring of Keys Code of Conduct, they shall investigate the veracity of the alleged violation. The IAP reserves the right to request interviews and/or information from relevant parties to assess the facts. These requests shall include no less than (1) the complainant and (2) the alleged offender. The IAP reserves the right to request interviews and/or information from all other parties relevant to the report.
Determination: Upon completion of the fact-finding process outlined above, the IAP shall collect their findings and compile a confidential report to the Board of Directors. Should a participant of the Board of Directors be the alleged offender or alleged victim, they shall receive the report and be excluded from the determining vote. The Board’s determining participants shall convene to assess the report and determine the suitable course of action, up to and including: removal of a Key from the online database, exclusion from RoK community events & publicity materials, removal from the Board of Directors, termination of employment or termination of contract. Should a criminal act be alleged, the Board reserves the right to provide the IAP’s report to local, state, and/or federal authorities. Such action shall be determined by a majority vote of the determining participants of the Board of Directors. Should a majority fail to be reached, the complaint shall be closed and the complainant shall be notified.
