#WellyTech 2017 Code of Conduct

Don't be an arsehole!

All Access Granted events are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion. The 2017 #WellyTech Xmas Do is no different

We do not tolerate harassment of event attendees in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any part of the event venue, including formal talks and podcast recordings.

Attendees violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event at the discretion of the organisers.

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. Attendees asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.

If an attendee engages in harassing behaviour, the event organisers 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 an event organiser immediately.

Event organisers will be happy to help attendees contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event.

We value your attendance.


This anti-harassment policy is based on the example policy from the Geek Feminism wiki, created by the Ada Initiative and other volunteers. http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/Conference_anti-harassment
