Tech Women Rising is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. This code of conduct applies to all Tech Women Rising spaces both online and off. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the Tech Women Rising organizers.
Some Tech Women Rising spaces may have additional rules in place, which will be made clearly available to participants. Participants are responsible for knowing and abiding by these rules.
If you are being harassed by a member of the Tech Women Rising community, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the Tech Women Rising organizer team or any of the event volunteers, who will be able to guide you to the organizers. If the person who is harassing you is on the team, they will recuse themselves from handling your incident. We will respond as promptly as we can.
In order to protect volunteers from abuse and burnout, we reserve the right to reject any report we believe to have been made in bad faith. The Tech Women Rising organizer team is not here to explain power differentials or other basic social justice concepts to you. Reports intended to silence legitimate criticism may be deleted without response.
We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we’ve received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of Tech Women Rising members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the Tech Women Rising organizer team may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all Tech Women Rising spaces and identification of the participant as a harasser to other Tech Women Rising members or the general public.
