Code of Conduct
First and foremost, the team at Open Source 101 is focused on providing a confidential and expedient way for attendees who believe they have experienced harassment or an unsafe situation to report the incident and get an immediate response. Although Open Source 101 at Home is being delivered virtually we know both can still occur, just as they can in-person.
Point of Contact

Code of Conduct Details
The Open Source 101 Series is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form – we have a zero tolerance policy, period. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate at any time, including in presentations (speaking directly to speakers here). Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference [without a refund] at the discretion of the conference organizers.
Harassment includes offensive comments related to gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images, deliberate intimidation, stalking, sustained disruption of talks/programming, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any behavior deemed harassing by organizers are expected to comply immediately.
Exhibitors, Sponsors and Speakers Included
Exhibitors, sponsors and speakers are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, exhibitors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference [with no refund].
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please message an organizer/host immediately, contact Jennifer Suber of Open Source 101 or email us at the firstname.lastname@example.org address (all info listed above). *We will handle the report confidentially and privately.
