We are proud to present
TechBBQ’s Code of Conduct!

Our code is anchored in our strong values rooted in the Nordic way: We embrace all people, because we believe that openness and inclusion is an integral part of TechBBQ. The Code applies to all participants of our events and/or conferences including any services provided or attached to TechBBQ.

TechBBQ Code of Conduct

As integral parts of the TechBBQ global community, we are obliged to act justly and respectfully at all times. Failure to adhere to this Code of Conduct may lead to removal from the TechBBQ community and/or organization. The Code of Conduct applies equally to online as well as in person conduct.

The TechBBQ Code of Conduct revolves around three key values:

TechBBQ employees are expected to act ethically and honestly, upholding the highest integrity in the performance of their duties.
