Code of conduct

When you join our programs, you’re joining a community. And like any growing community, a few ground rules about expected behavior are good for everyone. These guidelines cover both online (e.g. mailing lists, social channels) and offline (e.g. in-person meetups) behavior.

Violations of this code of conduct can result in members being removed from the program. Use your best judgement, and if you’d like more clarity or have questions feel free to reach out.

Community guidelines

Be nice. We’re all part of the same community, so be friendly, welcoming, and generally a nice person. Be someone that other people want to be around.

Be respectful and constructive. Remember to be respectful and constructive with your communication to fellow members. Don’t get into flamewars, make personal attacks, vent, or rant unconstructively. Everyone should take responsibility for the community and take the initiative to diffuse tension and stop a negative thread as early as possible.

Be collaborative. Work together! We can learn a lot from each other. Share knowledge, and help each other out.

Participate. Join in on discussions, show up for in-person meetings regularly, offer feedback, and help implement that feedback.

Step down considerately. If you have some form of responsibility in your community, be aware of your own constraints. If you know that a new job or personal situation will limit your time, find someone who can take over for you and transfer the relevant information (contacts, passwords, etc.) for a smooth transition.

Basic etiquette for online discussions. Don’t send messages to a big list that only need to go to one person. Keep off topic conversations to a minimum. Don’t be spammy by advertising or promoting personal projects which are off topic.

Organizer affirmations

  1. The GirlScript Event Community Guidelines and Anti- Harassment Policy must be followed. This Anti-Harassment Policy template is available for organizers to an estate in their community.
  2. It’s NOT ok to use Girlscript meetups for profit. Organizers should only charge attendees for ticket entry and/or get sponsorships to cover costs of event operations (e.g. food and drinks, venue, setup, speakers) if needed.
  3. It’s ok to partner with other groups and companies to arrange speakers, venues, and sponsorships.
  4. It’s ok to talk about Girlscript platforms in your community. We want to promote learning across technologies without bashing any company.
  5. The use of the GIRLSCRIPT name/logo is granted to organizers so long as they are in good standing with GIRLSCRIPT COMMUNITY and follow the GIRLSCRIPT guidelines.
