Code of Conduct

1. Purpose
WordPress Sydney believes our community should be truly open for everyone. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, religion, preferred operating system, programming language, or text editor.

This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participant behavior as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.

We invite all sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, and other participants to help us realize a safe and positive community experience for everyone.

2. Open Source Citizenship
A supplemental goal of this code of conduct is to increase open source citizenship by encouraging participants to recognize and strengthen the relationships between what we do and the community at large.

In service of this goal, WordPress Sydney organizers will be taking nominations for exemplary citizens.

If you see someone who is making an extra effort to ensure our community is welcoming, friendly, and encourages all participants to contribute to the fullest extent, we want to know. You can nominate someone by talking to the event organizer or online.

3. Expected Behavior
Be considerate, respectful, and collaborative.
Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory or harassing behavior and speech.
Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants.
Alert community organizers if you notice a dangerous situation or someone in distress.
Participate in an authentic and active way. In doing so, you help to create WordPress Sydney and make it your own.


4. Unacceptable Behavior
Unacceptable behaviors include: intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory or demeaning conduct by any members of WordPress Sydney and related events. All WordPress Sydney venues may be shared with members of the public; please be respectful to all patrons of these locations.

Harassment includes: offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, disability; inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images in public spaces (including presentation slides); deliberate intimidation, stalking or following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Also, no job postings, sales pitches or services listings on the meetup.com pages, please. Use the #referrals channel on our Slack group, wpaustralia.slack.com. See wpaustralia.org for instructions on joining slack.

5. Consequences Of Unacceptable Behavior
Unacceptable behaviour will not be tolerated whether by other attendees, organizers, venue staff, sponsors, or other patrons of WordPress Sydney venues which also includes online systems such as meetup.com, slack, facebook and twitter.

Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behaviour is expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in unacceptable behaviour, the community organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the community without warning or refund.

6. What To Do If You Witness Or Are Subject To Unacceptable Behavior
If you are subject to unacceptable behaviour, notice that someone else is being subject to unacceptable behaviour, or have any other concerns, please notify a community organizer as soon as possible or fill out an incident report if the incident was online.

The WordPress Sydney team will be available to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, to provide escorts, or to otherwise assist those experiencing unacceptable behaviour to feel safe in the community.

7. Scope
We expect all community members (sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, and other guests) to abide by this code of conduct at all venues and related social events.

8. Contact Information
We're available via the 'Contact' button over there in the left-hand sidebar, via a DM in twitter or Facebook messenger.

9. License And Attribution
This Code of Conduct is a direct swipe from the awesome work of Open Source Bridge, but with our event information substituted. The original is available at http://opensourcebrid... and is released under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license.
