Code of Conduct

The AMG workplace is positive, supportive, and inclusive – three essential values we strive to maintain as we grow. To that end, we have a few ground rules that we ask AMG employees, interns, artists, and third-party partners to adhere to. This isn’t an exhaustive list of things that you can/can’t do. Rather, take it in the spirit in which it’s intended – a guideline for making sure everyone at AMG is happy, productive, and safe.

  • Be friendly and patient.
  • Be welcoming. We strive to be a company that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities. This includes, but is not limited to members of any race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, color, immigration status, social and economic class, educational level, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, size, family status, health status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.
  • Be considerate. Your work will be used by other people, and you in turn will depend on the work of others. Any decision you make will affect users and colleagues, and you should take those consequences into account when making decisions.
  • Be respectful. Not all of us will agree all the time, but disagreement is no excuse for poor behavior and poor manners. We might all experience some frustration now and then, but we cannot allow that frustration to turn into a personal attack. It’s important to remember that a company where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one. Members of AMG should be respectful when dealing with other teammates as well as with people outside the AMG team.
  • Be responsible for oneself. During events affiliated with AMG including, but not limited to concerts, interviews, galas, festivals, team outings or other in-person events, you are a representative of AMG. Be mindful of your limits and respectful of others’ limits when it comes to alcohol and physical activity. Leaning on a teammate to make sure you’re staying safe and responsible is a smart and welcome practice.
  • Be careful of the words that you choose. We are a community of artists, but we are also a community of professionals, and we conduct ourselves professionally. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other participants. Harassment and other exclusionary behavior are unacceptable. This includes, but is not limited to:
    • Personal insults, especially those using racist or sexist terms.
    • Violent threats or language directed against another person.
    • Discriminatory language.
    • Posting sexually explicit or violent material.
    • Unwelcome sexual attention.
    • Repeated harassment of others. In general, if someone asks you to stop, then stop.
    • Hazing or the imposition of humiliating tasks as initiation rights to new teammates.
    • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.

Inspiration and language borrowed heavily from the Zapier Code of Conduct which borrowed from the Django Code of Conduct
