Google is dedicated to providing a harassment-free and inclusive event experience for everyone regardless of gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disabilities, neurodiversity, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality, race, age, religion, or other protected category. In an effort to make the event as inclusive as possible, gender- neutral bathrooms will be offered throughout the venue.
We don't tolerate harassment of event participants in any form. Google takes violations of our policy seriously and will respond appropriately. For more information on Google's Event Community Guidelines and Anti-Harassment Policy, please see here.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Our zero-tolerance policy means that we'll look into and review every alleged violation of our Event Community Guidelines and Anti-Harassment Policy and respond appropriately. We empower and encourage you to report any behavior that makes you or others feel uncomfortable by finding a Google staff member or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Event staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing discomfort or harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.
This policy extends to sessions, forums, workshops, codelabs, social media, parties, hallway conversations, all attendees, partners, sponsors, volunteers, event staff, etc. You catch our drift.

This includes, but is not limited to, attendees behaving in a disorderly manner or failing to comply with this policy, and the terms and conditions herein. If a participant engages in harassing or uncomfortable behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including a warning or expelling the offender from the conference with no refund.
