We're currently planning workshops for January 2017. We're targeting Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, and Pittsburgh. If you'd like to host or sponsor, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We assume that most people are well-intended, and we're not inclined to tell people what to do. However, we want every Safer Sec workshop to be a safe and productive environment for everyone. To that end, this code of conduct spells out the behavior we support and don't support.
We don't condone harassment or offensive behavior, at our workshops or anywhere. It's counter to our values as an organization and as human beings.
We're voicing our strong, unequivocal support of appropriate behavior by all participants. We invite you to help us make each workshop a place that is welcoming and respectful to all participants, regardless of race, gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, national origin, ethnicity, or religion. So that everyone can focus on the workshop itself, we will not tolerate harassment of participants in any form—in person or online.
Examples of harassment include offensive comments, verbal threats or demands, sexualized images in public spaces, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention. Harassment also includes slights and negative messages, both unintended and intentional, based solely on appearance (sometimes called microaggressions).
We expect all participants—attendees, speakers, sponsors, and volunteers—to follow the Code of Conduct during each workshop. This includes workshop-related social events and in related online communities and social media. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Participants violating this Code of Conduct may be expelled from the workshop without a refund, and/or banned from future events, at the discretion of Safer Sec organizers.
Please bring any concerns to the immediate attention of the event staff, or contact us at email@example.com. We thank our participants for your help in keeping our workshops welcoming, respectful, and friendly to all participants.
Thanks to everyone at O'Reilly (http://www.oreilly.com/conferences/code-of-conduct.html) and RubyConf, whose codes of conduct inspired this one.
