Edinburgh Skeptics: Respect People, Challenge Ideas

Edinburgh Skeptics promote an environment where everyone can put their views across and enjoy our events; as such we will not tolerate harassment* or abuse of either speakers or attendees, nor willful disruption of events.

Anyone found to be harassing, abusing or in any way intimidating others may be asked to leave and (at prepaid events) may not be refunded.

If at any stage you feel you need to report such incidents you can approach a member of the Edinburgh Skeptics committee who will be wearing name badges. We try to have at least one male and one female volunteer or committee member at each event.

You can use our contact form if you would prefer to raise the issue online.

Committee members will do their utmost to deal with all concerns and complaints swiftly and sensitively and support attendees if they feel further action or support is necessary.

We would like to stress that this policy is pre-emptive.

* Harassment refers to actions or words that are, or could be seen as discriminatory or inappropriate toward people based on gender, race, sexual orientation, gender-identification, age or disability.
