MLC Connect


Code of Conduct

MLC Connect works very hard to maintain the culture of the conference intact; a creative, innovative, and humble space for content creators to be inspired, learn more about their craft, and make connections to advance their development.

However, please do your part to help ensure a safe, diverse and welcoming environment and help ensure that MLC Connect is not a place for behavior that is inappropriate, off-topic, disruptive, abusive, or illegal.

MLC Connect defines inappropriate behavior as that which undermines the spirit of MLC Connect, including any form of written, verbal or physical abuse or threats, the use of derogatory or discriminatory language, gestures or actions, any form of harassment, racism, sexism, or any other targeted comments which may violate any local, state or federal laws or cause harm to another MLC Connect participant before, during or after the MLC Connect events, whether in-person in Nashville or at satellite events, via the MLC Connect mobile app, through social media channels, while engaging in any online aspect of the events, or any other method of communication.

MLC Connect may take action in its discretion to address any individual(s) or group(s) it believes fail to meet the standards set forth in this Code of Conduct, including, without limitation, revoking the violating parties’ credentials without refund. This is a zero tolerance policy.

During in-person events MLC Connect expects that all attendees of our events follow public health guidelines related to safety, hygiene and CDC identified pandemic level communicable illnesses (including COVID-19), including, without limitation, social distancing, hand washing, staying home if you are sick, and other disease prevention measures.

Please contact if you believe you’ve observed or experienced a violation of this Code of Conduct, and MLC Connect will work to assess the situation and to respond as soon as possible. You can also contact a conference staff member immediately. Conference staff can be identified as having staff badges and wearing staff branded t-shirts. Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We expect participants to follow these rules at conference, workshops, and venues and conference-related social events.

Notifying MLC Connect does not constitute or replace a notification to local law enforcement. All suspected violations of the law should be reported to local law enforcement. For emergencies, immediately dial 9-1-1. For non-emergencies, the Nashville Police Department is available at 3-1-1 or 615-862-8600.
