Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct BarbHack

The places where BarbHack takes place include our gatherings, events, workshops, communication channels, Twitter feed. These are inclusive spaces where all individuals must feel safe and respected. We welcome diversity in age, ethnicity, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, financial means, education, and political views.

We want all our members to enjoy a safe and respectful environment.

We will not tolerate any form of harassment, hate speech, or trolling, either offline or online, nor any drunk, intimidating, disruptive or violent behavior in our spaces. Harassment can be verbal, written, behavioral or pictorial, and includes any racist, homophobic, transphobic, sexist, sexually inappropriate or religiously discriminatory communication, behavior or imagery. "Jokes", "wit" and "freedom of speech" will not be accepted as justifications or excuses for such discourse, behavior or imagery.

While we cannot control the behavior of members or contributors outside these spaces, we will do everything we can to help resolve any problem that may occur outside our spaces.

If you have any issues or concerns related to the code of conduct, please contact an organizer either in person, or via Twitter at @barbhack or by email at

If you encounter any issues during an event, meeting, or workshop, please speak to the person presenting or one of the organizers.

We are guests in the premises we use, so please be respectful and do not alter the electronic equipment, software, or infrastructure, or more generally do not take food or drink without permission.

All BarbHack spaces are privatized and we reserve the right to exclude and as a last resort remove anyone violating this code of conduct.
