A More Detailed Version

Harassment encompasses verbal comments that are offensive based on gender, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, disability, appearance, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, or technology choices. It also includes displaying sexual images in public spaces, intimidation, stalking, unwanted recording or photography, sustained disruption of events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Speaker Guidelines

To maintain content quality, we have clear rules on content, distinct from other events:

  • All sessions must help the next generation of innovators and benefit the community.

  • Speakers from sponsoring companies must focus solely on delivering value and not on promotional content.
  • Companies violating these rules may face restrictions on speaking at future events.
  • Although we do have sponsored sessions, they must align with our values.
  • Session attendance depends entirely on its relevance to attendees.
  • We reserve the right to cancel sessions due to poor potential attendance.
  • Recording and Resources: We make session recordings and materials available to our audience post-event to facilitate ongoing learning within the India Innovation Week community.

Types of Sessions at India Innovation Week Events:

  • Panels: These 18-20 minute sessions feature 2-4 individuals discussing a topic. We prioritize diversity.
  • Roundtables: 18-20 minute sessions with 10-20 leaders discussing a topic.

  • Masterclass: Workshops lasting 18-20 minutes that blend presentations with group discussions.
