Edinburgh Skeptics: Respect People, Challenge Ideas

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

Anyone found to be harrassing, 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 blue name badges. We endeavour to make sure there is always at least one male and one female member of committee at each event.

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

We would like to stress that this policy is pre-emptive and no reported incidents of harassment have come to light at previous Edinburgh Skeptics events.

* Harrassment 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.
