Code of Conduct
Event and Community Code of Conduct
All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our events and in our community are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout all events. We are expecting cooperation from all participants to help ensuring a safe environment for everybody.
EdTechWomen events, gatherings, digital interaction spaces, and any other opportunities supported or provided by the organization, are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from any EdTechWomen event or space without refund at the discretion of the organizers.
Terms of Service
Welcome to the EdTechWomen HQ online listserv, the place for awesome women in edtech to connect, support each other, and make the world a better place (if anyone can do it, it’s us, right?). This group is committed to the values already espoused below and above; Margaret and I will step in with light moderation when needed to keep us focused on moving forward, not backward. What’s ‘backward motion’? Ad hominem attacks on anyone, divisive statements attacking a person or group’s identity, over-the-top self promotion, implicit or explicit bias. Our goal is to create a shared community within our fragmented, yet unique, ecosystem of education and technology. Just imagine what else could be done if we could build a strong community of women here within ourselves.
Don’t forget: all correspondence, including email addresses, phone numbers, and contact info are STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL. This means you cannot, without permission, share another person’s information with someone else. You cannot share their comments or posts. Consider everything off the record and not for attribution (unless you ask them directly). You also may not cc’ others who are not on the listserv.We will expediently remove members who break the confidentiality policies. If they fit the requirements, they can always apply to join themselves.
Please: do not start off list conversations based on ones happening on ETW Global. The point for us is to interact and connect. If you need help managing a tricky situation, just email Sehreen or Margaret and we will help.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, 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.
Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, 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.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of staff immediately or email us directly at email@example.com and organizers will work to remedy or alleviate the situation immediately.
We expect participants to follow these rules during EdTechWomen events and in EdTechWomen community spaces of any kind.
