Code of Conduct

Our community is dedicated to providing a harassment-­free experience for everyone,  regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment in any form. Sexual  language and imagery is not appropriate, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Attendees violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the community.​

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, 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. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Sponsors are also subject to the anti-­harassment policy.

 

In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Both staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the organisers may take any action they  deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event or program. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact TheProductLab immediately.

We expect participants to follow these rules at any TheProductLab event be it speaking,  workshops, or social events.
