The Short Version

The Austin Homegrown API Meetup is committed to creating a harassment-free experience for all participants, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race or religion. We will not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for this Meetup venue, including during presentations, workshops and social gatherings or on social media. Any participant violating this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from the group at the discretion of organizers.

The Long Version

Harassment may include (but is not limited to) offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public, intentional intimidation, following, stalking, taking harassing photographs or recordings, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate and unwelcome physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Any participant asked to fully cease any harassing behavior will be expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors and speakers are also subject to this anti-harassment policy. Specifically, sponsors and speakers should not use sexual images, activities or other material.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the meetup organizers will take action deemed appropriate. This may include warning the offender or expulsion from the Meetup.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any concerns with the Meetup, contact an organizer immediately. Organizers can be reached at the email addresses listed above, and they will make themselves known at the start of each Meetup so that you can speak to them directly if needed.

This Meetup’s organizers will be happy to provide escorts, contact law enforcement or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment so that they may feel safe for the duration of the Meetup.

The code of conduct outlined above will be in place and enforced at both our regular Meetup events and at any Meetup-related social events — no matter the venue or location.
