Code of Conduct

We value the participation of each member of the community and want all attendees feel safe and welcome.

All attendees, speakers, organizers and volunteers at EnthusiastiCon are required to observe the following Code of Conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event.

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

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 contact, derisive comments regarding technical background, and unwelcome sexual attention.

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

Please avoid making assumptions about people’s pronouns. If you don’t know what pronoun someone uses you can use their name rather than making an assumption. Here is a video if you’d like to know more about pronouns.

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 EnthusiastiCon.

Attendees violating these rules may be asked to leave the conference at the sole discretion of the conference organizers.

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