Our code of conduct applies to all meetups organised and delivered by GirlsCode / NodeSchool / Django Girls Milton Keynes. Please make sure you familiarise yourself with it and let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We’re here to ensure we all have a good time and learn together!

In short

GirlsCode is dedicated to providing a harassment-free meetup and workshop experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion.

We do not tolerate harassment of workshop participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate.

Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Behave professionally. Remember that harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate for GirlsCode.

Special request: keep your hands on your computer. We understand that sometimes we’re tempted to help someone by taking over their keyboard, but it’s better if attendees can learn by doing, rather than by watching 🙂

Longer version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, 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.

Remember that sexist, racist, and other exclusionary jokes can be offensive to those around you. Excessive swearing and offensive jokes are not appropriate for our meetup.

Reporting harassment

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the organisers immediately.
