TLS Anti-Harassment Policy

TLS is dedicated to providing a safe, harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of ethnicity, race, nationality, religion, language, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, or age. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference at the discretion of the conference organizers.

Exception: Sensitive topics like discriminatory language and intersectional identity are a point of focus for this conference. Therefore, discussion of these topics or similar is encouraged both during events and between individuals, as long as it is done in a respectful and thoughtful manner that is sensitive to the issues people experience due to systemic racism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination.

Enforcement

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, event organisers retain the right to take any actions to keep the event a welcoming environment for all participants. This includes warning the offender or expulsion from the conference.

Event organisers may take action to redress anything designed to, or with the clear impact of, disrupting the event or making the environment hostile for any participants.

We expect participants to follow these rules at all event venues and event-related social activities. We think people should follow these rules outside event activities too!

Reporting

If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it as soon as possible. Harassment and other code of conduct violations reduce the value of our event for everyone. We want you to be happy at our event. People like you make our event a better place.

You won't be asked to confront anyone and we won't tell anyone who you are.
