Code of Code
Any actions or words that make any individual feel uncomfortable or threatened, both in our online initiatives or IRL events, will not be tolerated. Examples of such behaviours include, but are not limited to:
- Violent threats or language directed at one or more individual(s)
- Discriminatory jokes and/or language
- Posting of sexually explicit or violent material
- Posting (or threatening to post) confidential information belonging to others
- Personal insults
- Unwelcome sexual attention
- Repeated harassment of one or more individual(s)
If you believe someone is behaving inappropriately in any of the aforementioned ways, please let our admins know with a concise description (and screenshot images, if available) via email at email@example.com. At IRL events, we will do our best to point out specific admins to reach out to, during event introductions. At online events, we will do the same and let you know which admins you can DM should you witness any violations of our code of conduct.
Membership in the Design Leadership Community Slack group is a privilege, not a right. The same goes for any of our online and offline events. In our efforts to provide a safe space for all participants, our admins reserve the right to remove folks who are not behaving appropriately, with or without warning, depending on the infraction(s) at hand.
We also reserve the right to discourage leveraging our community for the sole purpose of pushing traffic to any individual’s initiatives/events if they do so without bringing value to the community in return. Our hope is to curate organic conversations and genuine collaborations amongst members without having an outside party target a quality design community for marketing purposes.
No one signs an NDA to participate in our Slack group or attend our online and offline events. Please don’t presume anything you say here will remain private. Protect IP and legally-protected information. If you want to publicly disclose anything discussed here, use Chatham House Rule as the guideline (“participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed”). If you do come across any information presented by any participant that appears confidential, be kind and considerate and don’t repeat it elsewhere.
