Diversity and Inclusion

We strive to create an inclusive, judgement- and harassment-free place for individuals of all backgrounds and levels of experience to learn, connect, and grow together at all of our events, be they conferences or satellite events organized by local groups. Social events that are independently organized by meetup attendees are also covered by this Code of Conduct. If you have concerns, please get in touch as outlined below - we are committed to protecting your privacy and dealing with any issues promptly and carefully.

Be considerate

Approach your interactions with thoughtfulness and care. Do not dismiss someone because they have a different level of experience, are of a different background, or have a difference of opinion. Be kind to others.

Be respectful

Disagreement is not an excuse for poor manners. We don’t allow frustration to turn into a personal attack. A community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one.

Take responsibility for your words and actions

We all make mistakes. If someone has been harmed or offended, we listen carefully and respectfully, and work to right the wrong.

Reporting

If you experience or witness unacceptable behavior—or have any other concerns—please report it by contacting the meetup organizer. Should you need more support or are not getting your concerns addressed locally, please reach out to Netlify Community Manager Perry Eising - perry@netlify.com. All reports will be handled with discretion - we will not disclose your name or any other identifying information without prior consent. In your report please include:
  • Your contact information.
  • Names (real, nicknames, or pseudonyms) of any individuals involved, if they are known to you.
  • If there are additional witnesses, please include them as well, and let us know if they gave consent to be contacted.
  • Your account of what occurred, and if you believe the incident is ongoing.
  • Any additional information that may be helpful.
After filing a report, a representative will contact you personally, review the incident, follow up with any additional questions, and make a decision as to how to respond. If the person who is harassing you is part of the response team, they will recuse themselves from handling your incident. If the complaint originates from a member of the response team, it will be handled by a different member of the response team. We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse.
