The Sydney Tech Leaders meetup (STL) is dedicated to providing a harassment-free community for everyone, regardless of sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, age, body size, race, nationality, or religious beliefs. We do not tolerate harassment of community members in any form. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the community at the discretion of the STL organisers.
Harassment includes offensive verbal or written comments related to sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, age, body size, race, nationality, or religious beliefs, deliberate intimidation, threats, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any STL event or communication channel.
Community members are not to use Sydney Tech Leader meetings or communication channels in order to proposition any other member.
Community members asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. Sponsors and presenters are also subject to the anti-harassment policy.
If a community member engages in harassing behaviour, the STL organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the STL community. If you are being harassed please contact a STL organiser immediately. If you notice that someone else is being harassed please intercede or contact an STL organiser immediately. If you have any other concerns, please contact an STL organiser.
If you have questions or feedback about this Code of Conduct please contact one of the organisers.
STL organisers developed this Code of Conduct to govern all STL events and communication channels. We used the PDX Python code of conduct as a guide, itself influenced by the Geek Feminism Conference anti-harassment policy as a starting point.
