Code of Conduct

The U.S. Energy Storage Association (ESA) has established a Code of Conduct for our virtual conference events to which we require all conference attendees to adhere. This includes, but not limited to, the Energy Storage Annual Conference & Expo, the Energy Storage Policy Forum, Storage Exchange, seminars and workshops heretofore referenced as virtual events. This Code of Conduct Policy also applies to all related events, including those sponsored by organizations other than ESA, but held in conjunction with the official virtual events, on public or private platforms.

All participants, including attendees, speakers, exhibitors, staff members, service providers, and all others are required and expected to abide by this Code of Conduct.

The virtual events aim to be inclusive to the largest number of contributors, with the most varied and diverse backgrounds possible. We are committed to providing a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, disability, or other personal characteristics. This Code of Conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our virtual events as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior. We expect all participants to create safe and positive experiences for everyone.

ESA has zero-tolerance for any form of discrimination or harassment, including but not limited to sexual harassment, by participants or our staff at our meetings. If you experience harassment or hear of any incidents of unacceptable behavior, ESA asks that you inform either Becca Dietrich (b.dietrich@energystorage.org) so that we can take the appropriate action. All reports are confidential to the extent reasonably possible.

Unacceptable Behavior includes:

ESA reserves the right to take any action deemed necessary and appropriate in response to any incident of unacceptable behavior, including immediate removal from the virtual event without warning or refund, and/or the deletion of inflammatory or otherwise discriminatory comments in virtual event chats. ESA reserves the right to prohibit attendance at any future virtual event or in person event.
