All attendees, sponsors, partners, volunteers and staff at our Workshops are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to ensure a safe environment for everybody.
If you have witnessed or experienced any transgressions of this Code of Conduct at the Workshop please get in contact with us via firstname.lastname@example.org or find a staff person onsite.
Our Workshop is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of the following.
We do not tolerate harassment of Workshop participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate at any hackathon venue, this includes the following.
Workshop participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the Workshop without a refund (if applicable) at the discretion of the Workshop organizers.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, nationality, or religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, photography or audio/video recording against reasonable consent, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Photography is encouraged, but other participants must be given a reasonable chance to opt out from being photographed. If they object to the taking of their photograph, comply with their request. It is inappropriate to take photographs in contexts where people have a reasonable expectation of privacy (in bathrooms, etc.)
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of Workshop staff immediately.
The Workshop staff will be happy to help participants contact any local security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the Workshop. We value your attendance.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the Workshop organizers may take any action they deem appropriate. This includes warning the offender, expulsion from the Workshop with no refund (if applicable), or reporting their behavior to local law enforcement.
We expect participants to follow these rules at the Workshop venue and related social events.
