Variant Ventures Code of Ethics
At Variant Ventures, our mission is to provide the resources and support for collaborative story-builders at all levels of experience, ability and backgrounds — through collaboration with passionate, talented individuals along with our own products and services to inspire and entertain our community.
As such, we expect all members of Variant Ventures, including our business partners, to operate by the same values in their judgment and behavior.
Open communication and expression should be guided by the desire for a respectful, inclusive, and collaborative working environment.
We welcome and support people of all backgrounds and identities. This includes, but is not limited to members of any sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, social and economic class, educational level, color, immigration status, sex, age, size, family status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical differences.
We conduct ourselves in a kind and professional manner so that we may foster a creative working environment. We believe in the Golden Rule of “treat others in the way you want to be treated.” This principle extends to each interaction we have and in every communication we put forth.
We operate in an environment of honesty and transparency. This includes our internal operations, our relationships with our partners and our business and communications within the community.
We comply with all local, state, and federal laws and requirements in all areas in which we operate. In addition, we only operate with businesses or in partnerships that operate in full accordance with the law.
We operate under the principles of objectivity and fairness. As such, we work to reduce favoritism at all levels of decision making within the company.
We stand by our products, our communications and the decisions we make as a company. If necessary we take the appropriate steps to fix any mistakes that are made. We also own up to our limitations and ask for help when needed to ensure we operate at our best.
We find strength in diversity. Sharing differing viewpoints and perspectives is a key element to creativity and conquering new challenges. We are a community that is strongest when we all work in harmony. Communication is key, as such, all members are expected to keep open and timely communication when collaborating with Variant Ventures or other crafts persons, artists and partners.
