Code As Manuscript workshops are intended for learning and skill sharing. We value every member of the scientific community and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout the workshop. The same standards of behaviour are expected in the workshop spaces online.

To make clear what is expected, everyone taking part in the Code As Manuscript workshops—instructors and learners—is required to conform to the following Code of Conduct. Instructors will enforce this code throughout the sessions, but you may also contact us directly by email. All communication will be treated as confidential.

Code of Conduct

Code As Manuscript workshops, along with the University of Toronto, is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, nationality, religion, or choice of text editor. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. See also the University of Toronto’s Policy on Conduct

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. People violating these rules may be asked to leave the session or be excluded from the online space at the sole discretion of the instructor(s).

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

This code of conduct is a modified version of that used by Software Carpentry, which is also a modified version the version used by PyCon, which in turn is forked from a template written by the Ada Initiative and hosted on the Geek Feminism Wiki.
