Code of Conduct Guidelines

Toronto Mesh consensed to actively use our first version of our code of conduct on November 12, 2016

Code of Conduct

The Code of Conduct language is in our documents github repository and on our website at tomesh.net/code-of-conduct/

Enforcement

Enforcement guidelines are established in the Code of Conduct, with additional details provided below.

Receiving Reports

(The following is included from geekfeminism.wikia.com)

If someone reports harassment, ask for a written account of what happened. This should be kept confidential to as small a group as reasonably possible, and potentially anonymised by the receiving person before distribution to the closed group. If organizers receive a verbal report, they should themselves write down what they were told as soon as they can.

If the following information is not volunteered in a report, ask for it/include it, but do not pressure anyone:

  • Identifying information (name/badge number) of the participant doing the harassing
  • The behavior that was in violation
  • The approximate time of the behavior (if different than the time the report was made)
  • The circumstances surrounding the incident
  • Other people involved in the incident

Online Moderation

Online spaces maintained by Toronto Mesh (e.g. chat.tomesh.net) are also covered by our Code of Conduct.

Preliminary guidelines:

  • Each publicly-listed chat.tomesh.net room should have more than one moderator

Email Reporting

Our coc@tomesh.net is monitored by two individuals on a rotating basis, new monitors will be determined at our planning meetings which occur roughly every six months.
