Code of Conduct

All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our conference are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody. If you have any queries or need to flag anything please use the form on our Contact page or reach out to any of the Nonprofit Dreamin organizers listed on that page.

 

The quick version

Our community conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of community members in any form, including spamming of our in-session chat windows. Sexual language and imagery are 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.

 

Our expectations of all of us

  • Treat others respectfully, with kindness and empathy, to foster a safe environment
    – Avoid microaggressions
    – Combat discriminatory language
    – Seek advice or more information when we’re unsure
    – Use self-identified pronouns
    – Be accountable – own the impact of our behavior. Accept responsibility to heal damage we have caused even if (especially if) the impact was out of alignment with our intent

 

  • Be willing to learn from, listen to, and amplify all voices
    – Because every voice is crucial and no contribution is too small
    – Our approaches and decisions to common problems are most effective when informed by diversity and inclusivity
    – We know that great ideas come from many voices

 

  • Apply the THINK test if I am unsure whether my actions support this Code of Conduct
    – T – is it True?
    – H – is it Helpful?
    – I – is it Inspiring?
    – N – is it Necessary?
    – K – is it Kind?

 

Do not spam attendees

Nonprofit Dreamin would not be possible without our sponsors and they are eager to bring positive attention to their products and services. We also know that aggressive unwanted advertising is a form of harassment. While our conference will be attended by many people interested in learning about products and services related to their work, we will not tolerate uninvited advertising messages in chat channels or other settings.

Attendees, including sponsors, who wish to talk about their products and services are free to do so at their booths, when asked direct questions, or other similar occasions when it is clear that people are actively interested in the discussion. All discussions of products and services should have to aim of helping everyone in the community make the best selections for their situation.

The definition of inappropriate advertising messages is at the sole discretion of the organizers. We will remove without notice spam messages in public areas, and attendees who repeatedly post unwelcome messages may be warned and/or removed from the conference by the organizers.

 

To be very clear

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. We reserve the right to expel participants from the conference with no refund.

If you are being harassed, or notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact one of the Nonprofit Dreamin organizers immediately.

Our 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.

We would also like to acknowledge the support of London’s Calling and Salesforce.org in drafting this policy – we’re borrowed much of their work in helping manage everyone’s expectation and creating a space where we can all thrive together.
