All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at JSConf Mexico are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event. We are expecting cooperation from all participants to help ensuring a safe environment for everybody.
JSConf Mexico is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment from conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media.
Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.
Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors 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 someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it as soon as possible. If you see or hear someone do something, that might violate this Code of Conduct, please report it.
You can make a personal report by:
Contacting a staff member, identified by our t-shirts with the word “organizer”.
Twitter direct messages: our DMs on twitter are always open.
Email - You can send us an email, it will take us about an hour to respond.
Harassment includes, but is not limited to:
Verbal or written comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion.
Sexual images in public spaces
Deliberate intimidation, stalking, or following
Harassing photography or recording
Sustained disruption of talks or other events
Inappropriate physical contact
Unwelcome sexual attention
Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behaviour
In our commitment to a harassment-free and inclusive environment we strongly believe it's important to pay attention to harmful language patterns
Words like 'crazy', 'dumb', 'insane' or 'lame' are examples of ableist language, devaluing people who have physical or mental disabilities. Its appearance often stems not from any intentional desire to offend, but from our innate sense of what it means to be “normal”. These words can be avoided by using more fitting, clearer descriptions of what we want to communicate.
To find out more about ableism and replacement
Using gendered terms like 'dude' or 'guys' to address a mixed-gendered group of people contributes to furthering exclusion of underrepresented individuals. We strongly advise avoiding gendered pronouns as well as gendered terms.
For more information please familiarise yourself with the Geek Feminism wiki guide.
This Code of Conduct was based on JSConf EU, CSSConf / JSConf AU, JSConf Budapest, The Geek Feminism wiki, the work of Valerie Aurora, WeAllJS, and Conference Code of Conduct.
