Recently, there has been a great deal of controversy about incidents of harassment that have occurred at SCBWI NY & LA programs and events. It is of paramount importance to SCBWI that we maintain a welcoming and safe environment for all members of our community.
We have a zero-tolerance policy regarding harassment, discrimination and intimidation of any kind. To underscore that commitment, we have revised our anti-harassment policy to now contain a complete definition of what constitutes harassment, a code of conduct for all our events, a detailed and entirely new reporting procedure, and a list of sanctions for offenders. All members and faculty attending our events will be required to acknowledge this policy and adhere to it.
