This Meetup is wholly committed to maintaining an inclusive, harassment-free atmosphere. Attendees, speakers and sponsors must all abide by our code of conduct.
Our Code Of Conduct:
The Quick Version
Our meetup is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conversation, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the meetup without a refund at the discretion of the organizers.
The Less Quick Version
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the with no refund.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an organizer immediately.
Organizers will be happy to help participants contact security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conversations. We value your attendance.
We expect participants to follow these rules at any conversation and workshop venues and meetup-related social events.
