ConferenceDirect Associates Back New Code of Conduct

One of the first acts of ConferenceDirect’s recently formed Diversity Committee was to create an addition to the company’s Code of Conduct that states the company will not accept any verbal or written comments or visual images that are harmful or prejudicial related to race, gender identity, class, nationality, sexuality, religion, veteran status, and political affiliation, disability or ability status, or other personal characteristics. (Read more about the updated Code and the DEI Statement the Diversity Committee has created here.)

The company then asked its Associates to sign the updated Code of Conduct to signal their agreement with the company’s renewed commitment to making it a safe and inclusive environment for all.

“Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee spent a great deal of time this summer creating a ConferenceDirect DEI Statement and also updating our Code of Conduct,” said ConferenceDirect Chief Operating Officer Jerry Horan.

“The new Code of Conduct at ConferenceDirect specifically addresses our desire for a welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone, regardless of race, gender identity, class, nationality, sexuality, religion, veteran status, age, and political affiliation…and reject any forms of discrimination,” he added. “We thought it would be important for our Associates to re-sign our code of conduct with this new language and comment to the area of DEI at ConferenceDirect.”

To date, the following Associates have signed the updated Code:
