We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free workshop experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for the workshop. We expect participants to follow these rules at all times, even outside of the scheduled workshop times.
We hope that these guidelines will help us all move toward our vision of co-creating safe(r), respectful, equitable, and inclusive spaces that honor the worth and dignity of all participants. This means creating an environment where a range of views can be accommodated, even if this means we hear views with which we do not agree. Key aspects of the Code of Conduct include the following:
