We’ve Established a Code of Conduct & Anti-Harassment Policy for All Uncubed Events
April 30, 2015
We’re pleased to announce the implementation of a Code of Conduct and Anti-Harassment Policy for all of our events.
The reasons why we’re doing this do not require great elaboration. The technology, media, and startup sectors have witnessed some atrocious behavior at conferences, in offices, and elsewhere in recent years (and not so recent years).
The idea here is to establish clear framework for what is and what is not acceptable behavior at an event put on by Uncubed. Abiding by the policy will be mandatory for all participants at all of our events.
The policy is based off that provided by the Ada Initiative – it’s a framework that’s been adopted by hundreds of conferences. (Thanks to the Mapzen team for tipping us off here. And to the Ada team for building such great resources.)
While we’re generally proud of the behavior of our community and environment we’ve created to-date, this is an important step to ensure Uncubed events remain welcoming, comfortable, and professional experiences.
