GO Open Data Code of Conduct - Adapted from Civic Tech Toronto's "Code of Conduct and Anti-harrasment Policy"

It’s important that all participants are aware of the expectations and our grass roots culture during the conference. This is a reminder of the unwritten rules of generally being a good, kind and supportive human being for all those involved with the conference.

Civic Tech Toront'os policy has been adapted from the Recurse Center’s Social Rules, and the anti-harassment policy from the Geek Feminism Wiki.

GO Open Data is dedicated to providing a harassment-free environment 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.

Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate any time, including in present. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or asked to leave, at the discretion of the organizers.

Harassment includes verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, 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. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

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.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the organizing team immediately.

Organizers will be happy to help participants contact local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference.

All participants accept that they are responsible and accountable for their own actions.
