This policy is a living document and subject to refinement and updates in the future. Last updated on 17 July 2019.
SeleniumConf is a friendly community where everyone should feel welcome, safe and comfortable to share ideas and engage in open discussion. It’s really important for us to provide a harassment-free experience for everyone at the conference inclusive of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, nationality or religion.
All delegates, speakers, sponsors and staff are required to abide by our code of conduct in-person at SeleniumConf or any other White October Events conferences and meetups, and online. Any violations will be dealt with seriously and may include being expelled and banned from events or online spaces without a refund. This is to protect the safety of our community.
What do we mean by “harassment”? Harassment includes but isn’t limited to:
We prioritise the safety of marginalised people over privileged people’s comfort. This means we reserve the right not to act on complaints regarding:
Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to stop immediately.
Participants engaging in harassing behaviour may be asked to leave an event or online space and may be banned temporarily or indefinitely. If a ticket was purchased for an in-person or online event, we reserve the right not to issue a refund.
If harassment occurs outside an event or online space organised by White October Events that may impact the safety of our community, we reserve the right to investigate and take appropriate action, for instance banning from future events.
If you are being harassed or made to feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it as soon as possible. You can help us by reporting any behaviour you think might go against the Code of Conduct.
We'll update this section shortly.
We love working with our sponsors to come up with fun and creative ways to showcase your brand, meet your objectives and budgets, and add value for our attendees.
