Purpose

WordPress believes our community should be truly open for everyone. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, religion, age, caste, social class, preferred operating system, programming language, or text editor, among other identifying characteristics.

This code of conduct outlines our expectations for participant behavior as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.

We invite all sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, and other participants to help us realize a safe and positive experience for everyone.

Expected Behavior

  • Be considerate, respectful, and collaborative.
  • Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory or harassing behavior and speech.
  • Be mindful of your fellow participants. Alert Learn WordPress administrators if you notice a dangerous situation or someone in distress.
  • Participate in an authentic and active way. In doing so, you help to create a better experience for Learn WordPress and make it your own.

Unacceptable Behavior

Unacceptable behaviors include: intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory or demeaning conduct by any speaker, moderator, user, or attendee of Learn WordPress workshops and related events. All Learn WordPress platforms may be shared with members of the public; please be respectful to all patrons of these tools.

Consequences Of Unacceptable Behavior

Unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated whether by other users, attendees, speakers, administrator, sponsors, moderators or other patrons of Learn WordPress platforms.

Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in unacceptable behavior, the admins may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the group without warning.

What to Do If You Witness or Are Subject to Unacceptable Behavior

If you are subject to unacceptable behavior, notice that someone else is being subject to unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please notify an administrator as soon as possible.

The Learn WordPress team will be available to help participants contact moderators, or to otherwise assist those experiencing unacceptable behavior to feel safe for the duration of the discussion group.
