Event Expectations and Guidelines

We value the diversity of our members and attendees and foster a respectful environment during our meetings and events. While in attendance, please remember to:

  • Be kind and considerate to everyone in attendance.
  • Respect personal space and common courtesy rules for personal interaction.
  • Be mindful of others around you to ensure a great experience for your fellow participants.
  • Behave and dress professionally and appropriately.
  • Consume alcoholic beverages responsibly.
  • Follow the host’s instructions to ensure a smooth event.
  • Observe the rules and regulations of the venue where the event is being held.
  • Refrain from displaying or using any demeaning, harassing, aggressive, or intimidating language, materials or behavior.

Please report inappropriate behavior that makes you or another attendee uncomfortable to one of the Board Members immediately. A list of the current Board of Directors can be found HERE. NAWBO Silicon Valley will take immediate action if any of these are dishonored and follow the procedure established in our code of conduct to ensure a safe and pleasant time for everyone.

Accommodations Requests:

In consideration to a breathing disability present, at this time we cannot accommodate animals of any kind in our indoor venues. Dietary restrictions and other reasonable special accommodations requests must be submitted in advance and in writing to info@nawbo-sv.org. We try our best to make our meetings accessible but cannot guarantee all accommodations requested.

We appreciate your professional courtesy in being aware and following these guidelines.
