Code of Conduct

Why do we have a Code of Conduct?

We want everyone to feel safe and included. We want to set the expectation that harassment and other unpleasant behaviour are not acceptable and make the expectations of everybody’s behaviour explicit and transparent.

Behavior that contributes to a positive environment includes:

We do not tolerate harassment in any form.

This includes offensive comments related to the categories above, violent threats or language, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behaviour is also not acceptable.

Condescending behavior towards people of different knowledge levels is unacceptable.

Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for any of our events.

Some people may not wish to be filmed or photographed - respect their wishes and take extra care when publishing pictures.

Be careful in the words that you choose. Remember that sexist, racist, and other exclusionary jokes are offensive and unwelcoming to those around you.

What can happen if the Code of Conduct is violated?

Demanding that a participant stops their behaviour.

Demanding that a participant prevents further contact with certain other participants.

Removing a participant from an event.
