Turing Fest is committed to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Conference participants — including speakers, sponsors and exhibitors — violating these rules may be sanctioned or removed from the event, without a refund, at the discretion of the organisers.
Harassment includes, but is not limited to:
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. We expect participants to abide by this code of conduct at all Turing Fest venues and conference-related social activities.
If you are being harassed, or witness harassment of someone else, please contact a member of Turing Fest staff immediately. Staff members are readily identifiable by their ‘Turing’ t-shirts, and will immediately contact one of the conference organisers to handle incidents. You can also make a report directly to the organisers — contact details are published below.
This anti-harassment policy is based on the example policy from the Geek Feminism wiki, created by the Ada Initiative and other volunteers.
