Code Of Conduct
At SARCCOM, we assume that most people are intelligent and well-intended, and we’re not inclined to tell people what to do. However, we want every SARCCOM conference to be a safe and productive environment for everyone. To that end, this code of conduct spells out the behavior we support and don’t support at conferences. The core of our approach is this:
We don’t condone harassment or offensive behavior, at our conference venues or anywhere. It’s counter to our company values. More importantly, it’s counter to our values as human beings.
Examples of harassment include offensive comments, verbal threats or demands, sexualized images in public spaces, intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention. Harassment also includes slights and negative messages, both unintended and intentional, based solely on appearance (sometimes called microaggressions).
We expect all participants—attendees, speakers, sponsors, and volunteers—to follow the Code of Conduct during the conference. This includes conference-related social events at off-site locations, and in related online communities and social media. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Conference participants violating this Code of Conduct may be expelled from the conference without a refund, and/or banned from future SARCCOM events.
If you see someone harass, troll, or spam anywhere in the SARCCOM community (forum, chat, YouTube, Facebook, etc.), notify us in the firstname.lastname@example.org – preferably with a screen shot of the offense. The moderator team will take any action we deem appropriate, up to and including banning the offender from SARCCOM.
