Code of Conduct

Events held at CodeNode

Many of our events are held at CodeNode. All events at this venue are additionally covered by Skills Matter's Code of Conduct.

Purpose

A primary goal of BDD London is to grow our expertise in collaboration and communication. This commitment requires us to be inclusive to the largest number of participants, with the most varied and diverse backgrounds possible. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and religion (or lack thereof).

This code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.

We invite all those who participate in BDD London activities to help us create safe and positive experiences for everyone.

Expected Behavior

The following behaviors are expected and requested of all community members:

Unacceptable Behavior

The following behaviors are considered harassment and are unacceptable within our community:

Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior

Unacceptable behavior from any community member, including sponsors, organisers and those with decision-making authority, will not be tolerated.

Unacceptable behavior from any community member, including sponsors, organisers and those with decision-making authority, will not be tolerated. Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to do so immediately.

Unacceptable behavior from any community member, including sponsors, organisers and those with decision-making authority, will not be tolerated. We hope to resolve any problems in a reasonable manner, but if a community member engages in unacceptable behavior, we may take any action deemed appropriate, up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from the community without warning (and without refund in the case of a paid event).

Reporting Guidelines

If you are subject to or witness unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify us as soon as possible by.

You can report an issue via the CoC violation form: http://bit.ly/bdd-london-coc

Additionally, meetup organizers are available to help community members engage with local law enforcement or to otherwise help those experiencing unacceptable behavior feel safe. In the context of in-person events, organizers will also provide escorts as desired by the person experiencing distress.

Scope

We expect all community participants (contributors, paid or otherwise; sponsors; and other guests) to abide by this Code of Conduct in all community venues–online and in-person–as well as in all one-on-one communications pertaining to community business.

Specifically this includes but is not limited to the community events, socialising immediately following these events, and the group's slack channels.

This code of conduct and its related procedures also applies to unacceptable behavior occurring outside the scope of community activities when such behavior has the potential to adversely affect the safety and well-being of community members
