Distributed Web of Care
Code of Conduct
Open [Source/Culture/Tech] Citizenship
A supplemental goal of this Code of Conduct is to increase open [source/culture/tech] citizenship by encouraging participants to recognize and strengthen the relationships between our actions and their effects on our community.
Communities mirror the societies in which they exist and positive action is essential to counteract the many forms of inequality and abuses of power that exist in society. We seek to create an open and sharing environment deeply based in open source practice.
All open source (licensed or otherwise) and copyrighted work that is integrated into work inside and outside of the Distributed Web of Care event must be appropriately adhered to under the referenced work’s license guidelines.
If you see someone who is making an extra effort to ensure our community is welcoming, friendly, and encourages all participants to contribute to the fullest extent, we want to know.
- Participate in an authentic and active way. In doing so, you contribute to the health and longevity of this community. This is a grassroots event that we build together from the ground up. Everyone is expected to contribute.
- Exercise consideration and respect in your speech and actions.
- Attempt collaboration before conflict.
- Be respectful of the space, tools, equipment, and materials.
- Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech.
- Give attribution where attribution is due. Adhere to CC, open source, GNU and other licenses of work used and remixed
- Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants. Alert community leaders if you notice a dangerous situation, someone in distress, or violations of this Code of Conduct, even if they seem inconsequential.
No form of harassment will be tolerated. Harassment includes, but is not limited to:
- Verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, skill level, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, or religion.
- Intentionally lewd or sexually exploitative images in public spaces.
- Deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, or use of physical force; harassing photography or recording. Sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact.
- Unwelcome sexual attention; and advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, event organizers retain the right to take any actions to keep the event a welcoming environment for all participants. This includes warning the offender or expulsion from the event.
If you feel unsafe, uncomfortable, or unwelcome, please speak to an organizer:
