ChiTribe Event Policies

Introduction to ChiTribe Event Policies

At ChiTribe, our commitment is to create safe, respectful, and equitable environments at all our events. As our mission is to help Chicago connect via the internet and in person events, we reserve the right to void any registration for ChiTribe events at any time. This policy outlines the standards and procedures we uphold to ensure our community remains a positive space for everyone involved.

ChiTribe Community Standards

  1. Respectful Conduct: All participants, including staff, volunteers, and attendees, are expected to treat each other with respect and dignity.
  2. No Tolerance for Disruptive Behavior: Disruptive, harmful, or inappropriate behavior, including hate speech, sexual aggression, and predatory behavior, is strictly prohibited.
  3. Inclusivity: We embrace diversity and strive for inclusive practices at all our events.

Grounds for Action

ChiTribe reserves the right to refuse service or entry to any individual who violates these standards. Actions that may lead to being flagged or barred from future events include, but are not limited to:

  1. Engaging in hate speech or discriminatory behavior
  2. Demonstrating sexual aggression or predatory behavior
  3. Inappropriate contact with ChiTribe staff, volunteers, or participants
  4. Any additional behavior deemed harmful to the safety and well-being of the community (at the discretion of the ChiTribe staff based on individual incident)

Partnership Events

In events co-hosted with partner organizations, ChiTribe’s policies and standards will be upheld and enforced collaboratively. This means the partnering organization will sign a contract agreeing to the standards set forth in this publication, in addition to voiding registration to any individuals who have previously been flagged for unsafe or inappropriate behavior at a ChiTribe event. 

Reporting and Response

  1. Reporting Procedure: Incidents or concerns about individuals based on in-person interactions at a ChiTribe event should be reported to any member of the ChiTribe team in the form of conversation at an event, but we will request written documentation of any incident. 
  2. Formal Complaints: Formal complaints require completion of an Incident Reporting Form. All reports are reviewed by ChiTribe staff and taken seriously. Your information will remain anonymous when partnering organizations are made aware of individuals ChiTribe has flagged in our system. The reporter will not be named. 
  3. Support for Complainants and Respondents: Referrals to social services and other supports will be provided as needed. 

Photography and Media Policy

By attending our events, participants grant ChiTribe the right to use any photographs or videos taken during the event for ChiTribe’s purposes without compensation. All media captured becomes the sole property of ChiTribe. This is necessary for all current and future event marketing across all platforms. You can request to not be featured online, but this must be emailed as a request to before attending an event. 

Review and Adaptation

This policy is subject to regular review and updates in alignment with best practices and legal requirements.
