Agile Open Northwest dedicates our efforts to providing a safe, harassment-free experience for everyone. Our events create an environment that:
Recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group
Fosters dignity, understanding, and mutual respect
Embraces diversity–regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, race, disability, body size, physical appearance, cognitive capacity, or other innate trait
Respects religious freedoms and deeply held beliefs
We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form.
As a community, we will not endure insults or attacks on the other parties in any discussion. These modes of discourse do not contribute to the healthy exchange of ideas, and we consider them inappropriate. Sexualized language and imagery have no place in any part of the conference.
If another participant (whether target or bystander) asks you to stop any unwelcome or harassing behavior, we expect you to comply immediately.
Unwelcome behavior or harassment includes, but is not limited to: offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, disability or physical appearance; display of sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation, stalking or following of participants; sustained disruption of open space sessions or other events; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention.
If a conference participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including offering feedback on behavior, warning the offender, or expelling the offender from the conference with no refund. We may sanction or expel without a refund any conference participant (including paid registrants, sponsors, volunteer staff, and organizers) who violates these rules, at the discretion of the conference organizers.
