Readercon Releases a Safety Update

Folks new to the broad speculative fiction community may need a little background on what occurred at Readercon last August.  I did two posts here.  In short though the con had a Sexual Harassment Policy in place, an incident occurred and the organisation failed to follow though on its policy with the offending member.

After much discussion and good work from members within the organisation the situation was resolved and pledges were made to help improve future cons.  Readercon as released an update on where they are up to in meeting those pledges here.

Well worth a look for other convention organisers and for those thinking of attending conventions, for an insight into what should perhaps be best practise.
