Code of Conduct


We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free event for everyone regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion, technical skill level or economic standing. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.


We insist that everyone who uses the space remains mindful of, and takes responsibility for, their speech and behavior. This includes:
- Always acting out of respect and concern for the free expression of others.
- Actively listening to others and not dominating discussions.
- Respecting physical and emotional boundaries.
- Not making assumptions about identity, experiences, or preferred pronouns.
- Not using words that are racist, sexist, homophobic, classist, transphobic, cissexist or ableist.


If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, the organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event and online forums.


If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an organizer immediately.
