Scottish Summit is proud to be inclusive by design. Whilst inclusion isn’t something that can ever be ‘completed’ as such, we are proud to build it into our DNA and work towards ensuring everyone has a safe and positive experience.

As per our Code of Conduct, we do not tolerate racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, biphobia, misogyny, ableism or other discriminatory jokes, language or beliefs. This includes but is not limited to the conference day itself, the preceding hackathons and workshops, the conference feedback forms and social media discussion around the event. Please note that if you find this onerous or otherwise difficult to adhere to, Scottish Summit is not the event for you.

The venue is fully wheelchair accessible, and service dogs are permitted. If you may require assistance on the day, please let us know and we will accommodate you. There are unfortunately no gender neutral bathrooms available at the venue this year, except for the disabled access bathrooms. Scottish Summit would like to remind all attendees that not all disabilities are visible, and that ‘bathroom policing’ in any form is not acceptable.

Each session will be auto-captioned, and available for download afterwards. The venue will be very busy on the day, however there are quiet areas available in the University cafeteria if you feel you need a quieter place.

We understand that large community events, particularly in tech, have a bad name when it comes to inclusivity and diversity, however we are keen to change that. Not as a ‘box-ticking’ exercise, but because it is the right thing to do, and because when we involve people from all backgrounds, we learn more and become more.

If you feel your requirements may not be catered for, if you have any concerns or would just like to discuss this with us, please get in touch.
