Code of conduct.

Purpose

As part of our commitment to providing a safe environment for everyone, WP Engine has outlined a code of conduct for WP Engine Summit participants to lay out our expectations of participant behaviour and consequences for unacceptable. All participants in the WP Engine Summit are expected to uphold this code of conduct, including attendees, organisers, volunteers, venue staff, sponsors or other patrons of WP Engine Summit Australia throughout the Summit and related events.

Expected Behaviour

Maintain an environment of collaboration through respect and consideration.
Keep speech positive and avoid demeaning, discriminatory or harassing behaviour and speech. Be aware of your surroundings and other participants and report any dangerous or distressing situations to WP Engine Summit organizers.

Unacceptable Behaviour

Intimidation;
Abusive, discriminatory, or demeaning conduct;
Harassment, including:
Offensive comments related to race, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or disability status;
Public display of nudity and/or sexual images (including presentation slides);
Stalking, including deliberate intimidation or unwanted following of an individual;
Photographing or recording participants without their consent;
Unwanted physical contact or sexual attention.

Consequences of Unacceptable Behaviour

Anyone who is asked to cease unacceptable behaviour is expected to stop immediately, no matter who asks. Conference organisers may take any action they determine to be appropriate in the case of a participant’s unacceptable behaviour, including the participant’s expulsion from the Summit.

How to Report Unacceptable Behaviour

If you are the subject of or witness to inappropriate behaviour, we encourage you to report the incident to a Summit organiser as soon as you are safely able. WP Engine employees will be visible throughout the event and can connect you with a Summit organiser. You can also ask for the organisers at the registration desk. Organisers will assist with contacting security or law enforcement or finding other ways to aid anyone in need.
