EdLUG Code of Conduct
The Edinburgh Linux User Group (EdLUG) is dedicated to providing a harassment-free community for everyone, regardless of sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, age, body size, race, nationality, or religious beliefs. We do not tolerate harassment of community members in any form. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the community at the discretion of the EdLUG organisers.
Harassment includes offensive verbal or written comments related to sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, age, body size, race, nationality, or religious beliefs; deliberate intimidation, threats, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any EdLUG event or communication channel. Community members asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.
If a community member engages in harassing behaviour, the EdLUG organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender, asking the offender to leave the discussion or event, expulsion from the EdLUG community, and/or removal from an event, without refund in cases of paid-for events.
All EdLUG community members, organisers, guests and sponsors will be expected to adhere to this code of conduct when engaged with activities and events related to EdLUG, including in online communications, in-person communication, presentation materials and in any materials and designs brought to an EdLUG event.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an EdLUG organiser immediately, or as soon as you feel comfortable doing so.
The EdLUG meeting and mailing list organisers are listed at the Maintainers page, and can be contacted individually or severally.
If you have questions or feedback about this Code of Conduct please contact the organisers.
Should a need arise to enforce this CoC, a reference approach can be found on the PyLadies website.
