Slack Code of Conduct

Jessica Tremblay edited this page Nov 7, 2016 · 2 revisions

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, or religion; sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other activities; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Remember that "no means no". If someone asks you to stop speaking about a particular subject, or to leave them alone, please do so.

Support your friends and fellow fans. If you see someone behaving badly, please let them know that you're not OK with it.

Board members are also subject to the anti-harassment policy.

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

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a board member (Chapter President or Vice President) immediately.

Board members will be happy to help participants contact the necessary parties or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe. We value your attendance.

We expect members to follow these rules and at event-related social gatherings.


We understand that board members are volunteer based and that all work is done on a extra curricular level. When posting assignments to Slack, all members are asked to take note that unless there is an "immediate action needed" ask, work will be accomplished when the team has the time to attend to it.

We also ask board members to be conscious of tone level. Context is hard to grab in a messaging app, so some sarcasm and/or jokes might be taken in a different light other than intended. Please be aware and take note of this.


This code of conduct was adapted from the Conference Code of Conduct and using additional materials and guidelines from the Geek Feminism Wiki.
