A primary goal of ContraryCon is to be inclusive to the largest number of participants, with the most varied and diverse backgrounds possible. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and religion (or lack thereof).
This code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in the conference, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
We invite all participants to help us create safe and positive experiences for everyone.
The following behaviors are expected and requested of all community members:
The following behaviors are considered harassment and are unacceptable:
Unacceptable behavior from any conference participant, including sponsors and organizers, will not be tolerated.
Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in unacceptable behavior, we may take any action deemed appropriate, up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from the conference without warning (and without refund in the case of a paid event).
If you are subject to or witness unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify us as soon as possible by emailing email@example.com. Please read Reporting Guidelines for details.
Additionally, organizers are available to help attendees engage with local law enforcement or to otherwise help those experiencing unacceptable behavior feel safe. Organizers will also provide escorts as desired by the person experiencing distress.
Only permanent resolutions (such as bans) may be appealed. To appeal a decision of the conduct working group, contact the ContraryCon organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org with your appeal and the organizing group will review the case.
We expect all attendees to abide by this Code of Conduct in all venues.
This code of conduct and its related procedures also applies to unacceptable behavior occurring outside the scope of the conference when such behavior has the potential to adversely affect the safety and well-being of participants.
