CONFERENCE CODE OF CONDUCT
All attendees, speakers, sponsors, and volunteers at Codemotion are required to agree to the following code of conduct. Organizers will enforce this code during the event. We expect cooperation from the part of the participants to ensure a safe environment for everybody.
IN A NUTSHELL…
Codemotion is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online communication channels. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund from the part of conference organizers.
OUR CODE OF CONDUCT
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recordings, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to do so immediately.
Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other improper material. Staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes that could create a sexualized environment.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, Codemotion organizers may take any action they think is appropriate, including warning the offender or their expulsion from the conference with no refund.
If you are being harassed, you have noticed that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the conference staff immediately. Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts or assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe during the conference.
We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.
We value your attendance.
If you experience any problems, please contact us:
Local law enforcement call number: 112 (no charge)
Local emergency and non-emergency medical (e.g., urgent care, day clinic) call number: 118
(This anti-harassment policy is based on the example policy from the Geek Feminism wiki, created by the Ada Initiative and other volunteers)
