The Voices of Data Science at University of Massachusetts Amherst aims at providing all participants with an environment that promotes exchange of ideas without any form of discrimination.

To maintain this, we expect all participants to cooperate and help ensure a code of conduct. We welcome people of all backgrounds which includes but is not limited to sexual orientation, age, gender identity or expression, race, ethnicity as well as fields of study. Any form of unacceptable behaviour like harassment, derision, threatening, discrimination will result in denial of access to the program and all ties will be broken by that association or individual. The individuals guilty of unacceptable behaviour will be banned from future Voices of Data Science at University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Please contact us immediately if such behaviour is encountered.

We are very strict with respect to abiding by the code of conduct and is based on the Grace Hopper conference and Women in Data Science conference code of conduct mentioned here.

This Code of Conduct may be revised at any time by Voices of Data Science @ UMass Amherst Conference. Questions, concerns, or comments should be directed to
