Code of Conduct

All attendees, speakers, sponsors, volunteers and organizers at any Plotter People event are required to abide by the following code of conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event.

How to Get in Touch

If you see, hear, or over-hear anything that makes you uncomfortable, please find one of us and we’ll do what we can to make it right.

If you can’t immediately find one of us in person if you see or hear something, you can send an anonymous SMS to (415) 237-7262, or email plotterpeople@nornagon.net.

Or, you can submit an anonymous report right here.

We’ll review and act on it. If you let us know who you are, we’ll follow up with you.

The Quick Version

Plotter People is dedicated to providing a harassment-free meet-up experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of attendees in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate in any medium, including talks (or even just casual conversation arriving, during and after the event). Plotter People participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the meet-up without a refund at the discretion of the organizers

Plotter People’s code of conduct is inspired by the JSConf code of conduct.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the meet-up organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the meet-up without refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an organizer immediately.

Meet-up organizers will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at all meet-up venues and meet-up-related social events. This includes any social activity preceding or following a meet-up.
