Code Of Conduct
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, internet or real life trolling, comments related to sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion; 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. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
USE OF SEXUALIZED IMAGERY
Teachers, event organizers, volunteers, and hosts are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, teachers/hosts/organizers should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Our organizers, teachers, teacher’s assistants, and event hosts (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized/hostile environment while conducting training / public speaking / hosting a meetup and/or a workshop.
CONSEQUENCES OF UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the HackBuddy organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expelling them from the class/event/meetup group [with no refund].
WHAT TO DO IF YOU WITNESS OR ARE SUBJECT TO UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR
HackBuddy Teachers & Event Organizers will be happy to help members contact local law enforcement, provide escorts when possible and with reasonable notice, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event/class. We value your attendance. HackBuddy expects participants to follow these rules at all HackBuddy social events and in online discourse.
