Code of Conduct

Global Entrepreneurship Week is celebrated worldwide with tens of thousands of events, activities and competitions each November that inspire millions to explore their potential as an entrepreneur while fostering connections and increasing collaboration within their ecosystems. Powered by the Kauffman Foundation, Global Entrepreneurship Week has expanded to 170+ nations since its launch in 2008.

KCSourceLink, a program of the UMKC Innovation Center, is organizing multiple GEW-related events Nov. 18-22 in Kansas City, and is committed to a positive, harassment-free experience for all participants. Our anti-discrimination and -harassment policies can be found at


If you feel unsafe or unwelcome, or notice that someone else is being harassed, please report it to GEWKC staff as soon as possible. Staff can be located at the registration desk and can be reached via the volunteers in the purple GEWKC shirts.

Here are the University of Missouri-Kansas City guidelines on reporting incidents that are harmful to members of the community:

Local law enforcement: 816-234-5510 (non-emergency number, dial 911 in an emergency)

Local sexual assault hotline: MOCSA (Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault), 816-531-0233
