Be respectful. Harassment and abuse are never tolerated. If you are in a situation that makes you feel uncomfortable at a Catalyst Hack Event, if the event itself is creating an unsafe or inappropriate environment, or if interacting with a Catalyst Hack representative or event organiser makes you feel uncomfortable, please report it using the procedures included in this document.
Catalyst Hack stands for inclusivity. We believe that every single person has the right to hack in a safe and welcoming environment.
Harassment includes, but is not limited to, offensive verbal written or comments relating to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, social class, economic status as well as sexual images, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption or talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention. If what you’re doing is making somebody feel uncomfortable, that counts as harassment and it enough reason to stop doing it. We expect participants to follow these rules at all hackathon venues and during online interactions in relation to the event.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, Catalyst Hack may take any action it deems appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event with no eligibility for reimbursement or refund of any type. Catalyst Hack representatives will help participants to contact venue security or local law enforcement if deemed necessary, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.
Sponsors, judges, mentors, volunteers, organisers, venue staff, contractors and anyone else at the event are also subject to this anti-harassment policy. In particular, attendees must not use sexualised images, activities or other material both in their hacks and during the event.
If you are being harassed, notice that somebody else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact Catalyst Hack using the reporting procedures defined below.
If you feel uncomfortable or think there may be a potential violation of this Code of Conduct, please report it immediately using one of the following methods:
