In keeping with our culture, it is important we provide a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all Sales Kickoff (SKO) participants.
Proofpoint is committed to equal opportunity for all attendees to engage, inspire, educate and celebrate our achievements with your peers from around the world without regard to race, color, creed, gender, religion, marital status, age, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy, veteran status or any other protected status under federal, state or local laws. Proofpoint prohibits any discrimination based upon these factors.
We expect our virtual participants to be courteous and act professionally at all Proofpoint events and to interact and communicate in ways that are appropriate for a professional audience from diverse backgrounds.
This code of conduct outlines expectations for participant behavior, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior at sales kickoff.
