The Anchorage Museum is committed to creating a safe space for everyone. Your participation in Anchorage Museum programming as someone planning, participating in, or attending one of our in-person or virtual programs, constitutes your agreement to abide by this Code of Conduct.

*To be friendly and patient. Be helpful and foster a positive attitude and experience for all.

*To be welcoming. Be a community that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities, including members of any race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, immigration status, social and economic class, educational level, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, size, family status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.

*To be respectful. Anchorage Museum program participants, volunteers, and staff should be respectful when dealing with others, especially when disagreements arise. Personal attacks, harassment and other exclusionary behavior are not acceptable. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Violent threats or language directed against another person.
  • Discriminatory jokes and language.
  • Sharing sexually explicit or violent material.
  • Posting (or threatening to post) other people’s personally identifying information (“doxing”).
  • Personal insults, especially those using racist or sexist terms.
  • Unwelcome sexual attention.
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.
  • Repeated harassment of others. In general, if someone asks you to stop, then stop.

*To discuss and/or pitch personal projects only within a professional context, without excessively selling personal products, projects, or services.

Reporting Guide
If you believe someone is violating the Code of Conduct we ask that you report it to the Anchorage Museum via the online form. All reports will be kept confidential. In some instances, we may determine that a public statement will need to be made. If that's the case, the identities of all victims and reporters will remain confidential unless those individuals instruct the Anchorage Museum otherwise.

If you believe anyone is in physical danger, please notify appropriate law enforcement first. If you are unsure what law enforcement agency is appropriate, please include this in your report and we will attempt to notify them.

If you are unsure whether the incident is a violation, or whether the space where it happened is covered by this Code of Conduct, we encourage you report it anyway. 

We understand how important a Code of Conduct is and we invite your input to strengthen our policies to ensure the safety and inclusiveness of our community. If you have any input, feedback and/or suggestions, please contact us.
