It’s increasingly important that professional societies adopt a strict code of conduct for their meetings, prohibiting harassment and discrimination and specifying mechanisms for reporting inappropriate behavior. I’ve started a google doc listing societies, whether they have a code of conduct, and a link to theirs if they do. Check if your favorite society is listed here (the current count is 60). If it’s not, please add it — anyone can update the page! And if your favorite society doesn’t have a code of conduct, contact them and request that they adopt one!
