Anti-Harassment Policy

The OpenWrt Summit is a community conference intended for networking and collaboration in the OpenWrt community.

We value the participation of each member of the OpenWrt community and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout the conference and at all conference events, whether officially sponsored by prpl Foundation or not.

To make clear what is expected, all delegates/attendees, speakers, exhibitors, organizers and volunteers at any OpenWrt Summit event are required to conform to the following Anti-Harassment Policy. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event.

The Short Version

prpl is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of summit participants in any form.

All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks.

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 OpenWrt Summit.

Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave the conference without a refund at the sole discretion of the conference organizers.

Thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly event for all.

The Longer Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, 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.

Be careful in the words that you choose. Remember that sexist, racist, and other exclusionary jokes can be offensive to those around you. Excessive swearing and offensive jokes are not appropriate for OpenWrt Summit.

If a participant engages in behavior that violates this code of conduct, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.
