Code of Conduct

JAMstack_conf is not just a conference...it’s a community! We strive to create an inclusive, judgement- and harassment-free place for individuals of all backgrounds and levels of experience to learn, connect, and grow together.

Every person has their personal story that has shaped their unique perspective. This can be a fascinating thing! Everyone you meet has the potential to amaze you with the things they’ve done and the things they know. However, it can also create misunderstandings, which can potentially lead to conflict.

In order to mitigate conflict, and to create a more welcoming, safe atmosphere, all conference attendees, sponsors, speakers, vendors, volunteers, staff and organizers shall:

Be considerate

Approach your interactions with thoughtfulness and care. Recognize the myriad differences between yourself and others, and that you may not view the world through the same lens. Do not dismiss someone because they have a different level of experience, are of a different background, or have a difference of opinion. Be kind to others.

Be respectful

Disagreement is not an excuse for poor manners. We work together to resolve conflict, assume good intentions and do our best to act in an empathic fashion. We don’t allow frustration to turn into a personal attack. A community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one.

Anti-Harassment Policy

JAMstack_conf is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.

Sponsors 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.

  • Verbal or written offensive comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, or religion
  • Sexual images in public spaces
  • Deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following
  • Harassing photography or recording
  • Sustained disruption of talks or other events
  • Inappropriate physical contact
  • Unwelcome sexual attention
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behaviour

Bathroom policy

Diversity and self-expression are important in our world - both at JAMStack_conf and beyond.

Therefore, we encourage all attendees at the conference to use the bathroom they feel most comfortable in, regardless of gender expression. Should you feel inclined to question someone’s bathroom choice, please don’t - we feel sure they know quite well where they belong.

If you witness someone being made to feel unwelcome, or someone makes you feel unwelcome while using the facilities, please reach out to a conference staff member so we can assist you.
