CrisisHack wants everyone to have a great and productive time when getting together to improve humanitarian response management. The CrisisHack is also about sharing knowledge, interests and ideas to innovate geospatial technology.
Therefore we are dedicated to provide a harassment-free, inclusive experience for everyone taking part, regardless of the following:
Gender, gender identity and expression,
Previous hackathon attendance or lack of,
Computing experience or lack of,
Chosen programming language or tech stack.
Harassment, according to the Equality Act 2010, is defined as: ‘Unwanted conduct related to a relevant protected characteristic, which has the purpose or effect of violating an individual's dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for that individual.’ Therefore the CrisisHack team does not tolerate any unwelcome or hostile behaviour, speech or physical contact, which intimidates, creates discomfort, or interferes with a person’s participation in the hack event. Sexual language and imagery is also not appropriate at the hackathon event as well as on our social media, Slack, and other online platforms.
We reserve the right to caution any participant or staff violating this code of conduct, and, if necessary, expel those individuals from the hack competition, our premises, or even future events.
So, please be respective of other people’s opinions, abilities and interests, and welcome participants with an open mind, to ensure everyone gets the most out of this experience. We learn best with each other, not for each other - so, let’s make the most of an open innovation for a good cause.
