All attendees, speakers, sponsors, volunteers and organisers at our meetup group and online interactions are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We are expecting cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.
tl;dr: Be excellent with each other
Berkshire JS is organised by Peter O’Shaughnessy, Steve Workman, Marcus Noble and Seren Davies. You can contact any of us directly either through Twitter, or by grabbing us in person. You can also DM the Berkshire JS twitter account or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The quick version
Berkshire JS is dedicated to providing a harassment-free community for everyone, regardless of sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, age, body size, race, nationality, religious beliefs, or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of community members in any form. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from Berkshire JS services or events at the discretion of the Berkshire JS organisers.
The less quick version
Harassment includes offensive verbal or written comments related to sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, age, body size, race, nationality, religious beliefs, technology choices, deliberate intimidation, threats, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any Berkshire JS event or communication channel. Harassment in online services extends to sending excessively large or numerous messages, or uploading offensive images or videos.
Everyone using Berkshire JS services or attending Berkshire JS events is subject to the anti-harassment policy; this includes sponsors, speakers, recruiters and organisers.
Anyone asked to stop any harassing behavior is expected to comply immediately. If a community member engages in harassing behavior, the Berkshire JS organisers may warn the offender or expel them from Berkshire JS services or events. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a Berkshire JS organiser immediately.
Berkshire JS organisers may also provide an additional code of conduct for the needs of individual communication channels or events.
