For an atmosphere of mutual respect
The team at DevOps Essentials endeavours to ensure all participants, regardless of their gender, ethnic origin, religion, belief, disability, age or sexual identity, have a discrimination and harassment free conference.
If, during the event, any harassment or other undesirable behaviour occurs, the organisers will work to ensure that this is stopped immediately.
Undesirable behaviour includes insulting, discriminatory or sexual words and pictures in lectures, workshops, and evening events, and in the use of online media such as Twitter or Facebook.
It also includes unwanted physical contact, images and sounds, harassing, stalking and intentionally disruptive behaviour that leads to repeated disruption of parts of the event.
Exhibitors in the expo hall, sponsor or vendor booths, or similar activities are also subject to the code of conduct. In particular, exhibitors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff, including volunteers, should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.
If participants are victims of, or witness, such behaviour please contact the organising team.
The team at DevOps Essentials will take all such concerns seriously and will decide how to respond to them appropriately. It will look after the harassed person and decide according to householder's right, how a repetition can be precluded.
The diversity manager is Björn Bohn, whom you can contact here.
