All delegates/attendees, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, partners and volunteers (hereafter referred to as
“participants”) at the Agile Testing Days (ATDs) must abide by the following Code of Conduct. Organizers will
enforce this code throughout the event.
The ATDs are dedicated to provide a harassment-free and inclusive conference experience for everyone. Therefore
we do not tolerate harassment of participants in any way, e.g. offensive verbal comments related to gender,
gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race,
ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking,
following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks and other events, inappropriate
physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to follow the warning immediately and refrain
from any further misconduct. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the ATDs conference organizers
may take any action they deem appropriate, including a warning of the offender or his/her expulsion from the
conference with no refund.
Any communication and material issued at the conference from sponsors, exhibiting partners, at vendor booths
or from similar parties are subject to this code of conduct, too. In particular, exhibitors should not use
sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not wear sexualized
clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment. If you are unsure if the outfit is
appropriate, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact
a member of the ATDs conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be found at the conference registration desk.
ATDs conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement,
provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment or discomfort to feel safe for the duration
of the conference. We value your attendance.
We expect cooperation from all participants to ensure a safe environment for everybody. This code extends to,
talks, workshops, tutorials and any conference-related sessions and social events.
This code of conduct is based on and influenced by several community policies including: Ohio LinuxFest
Anti-Harassment policy, Con Anti-Harassment Project, Geek Feminism Wiki (created by the Ada Initiative),
JSconf, Rust, Diversity in Python, and Write/Speak/Code. This code of conduct is licensed under the
