In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as organisers, attendants, students and instructors pledge to make participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
Examples of behaviour that contributes to creating a positive environment include:
- Using welcoming and inclusive language
- Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
- Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
- Focusing on what is best for the school and the community
- Showing empathy towards others
Examples of unacceptable behaviour by participants include:
- The use of sexualised language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances
- Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
- Public or private harassment
- Publishing others' private information, such as a physical or electronic address, without explicit permission
- Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional and academic setting
Organisers are responsible for clarifying acceptable behaviour standards and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behaviour.
Organisers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, changes, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any participant for other behaviours that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.
This Code of Conduct applies both within the school, project spaces, and public spaces when an individual represents the project or its community. Examples of representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail address, post via an official social media account, or act as an appointed representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a project may be further defined and clarified by the organisers.
Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise, unacceptable behaviour may be reported by contacting the organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a deemed necessary and appropriate response to the circumstances. The organisers' team is obligated to maintain confidentiality concerning the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.
Instructors and organisers team members who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other members of the project’s leadership.
