SEB Anti-Harassment Form
The SEB takes all allegations of harassment very seriously and it is our highest priority that our memebrs and supporters feel safe and welcome at any SEB event or activity. We kindly ask that all attendees of an SEB event become familiar with our code of conduct, anti-harassment and bullying policy, and act with kindness and respect towards others. It is a requirement that all attendees of an SEB event agree to this code of conduct before attending.
If you feel at any time you have been the victim of harassment or inappropriate behavior that contradicts our code of conduct, you may use the following form to report the incident.
You may choose to remain anonymous in this process, however, if you do provide us with your contact details we would like to reassure you that we will never pass your name or contact details to the accused, and we will avoid telling them anything that may notify them of your identity. Please do not attempt to contact the accused party in relation to this complaint. If you feel that your or someone else's personal safety is in immediate danger please contact the local authorities and/or venue staff as appropriate.
What happens now?
Your report will be reviewed by the SEB Outreach, Education, and Diversity manager who will contact you to acknowledge receipt.
If escalated, your report will be passed on to the SEB President and OED Trustee for review. If one of these people are involved in the accusation, it will instead be handled by the SEB CEO, secondary OED trustee, vice president and/or OED manager, and the form will be will anonymized
A decision will be made on the appropriate action to take. Depending on the severity and nature of the incident, this could include:
- No further action taken
- A reminder email is sent to the accused regarding the SEB code of conduct
- The accused parties may be removed from the event
- The accused parties may be banned from SEB membership status
- The SEB may suggest that the form filler contacts relevant local authorities such as the police
If we suggest the case is escalated to local authorities but the form filler does not wish to take this action, we will respect the decision unless there are reasonable grounds otherwise. For example, if there is an ongoing risk to their safety or the safety of others. In this case, we will always talk to the form filler before contacting the authorities.
