OpenCon’s Code of Conduct in Brief
Gathering for Open Source Hardware’s examples of behaviour
Participants (including organisers) asked to stop any harassing
behaviour are expected to comply immediately. If a participant
engages in harassing behaviour, event organisers 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.
Event organisers may take action to redress anything designed to
disrupt, or with the clear impact of disrupting, the event or
making the environment hostile for any participants.
We expect participants to follow these rules at all event venues
(including online) and event-related social activities.
If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome,
please report it as soon as possible. Harassment and other Code
of Conduct violations reduce the value of our event for everyone.
We want you to be happy at our event. People like you make our
event a better place.
You can make a report either personally or anonymously.
All reports will be handled with discretion.
You can make a personal report directly to one of the two
contact people on site at each event. Their details will be
shared at the start of the event. You can also contact Bastian Greshake Tzovaras (firstname.lastname@example.org)
at any time before, during or after an event.
