Our Code of Conduct

As part of the international WordPress community, the Montreal meetup group abides by a code of conduct, and members must follow its guidelines.

With WordCamp Montreal coming up, we thought this was a good opportunity to remind everyone that we have a code of conduct, which we take seriously. If you’re part of our community in any way, you need to be aware of the code of conduct and behave accordingly.

Please take a moment to look over the code of conduct, and get familiar with it.

We wanted to highlight these sections in particular:

  • Unacceptable behaviors include: intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory or demeaning conduct by any members of the Montréal WordPress Community.
  • Harassment includes: offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, disability; inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images in public spaces (including presentation slides); deliberate intimidation, stalking or following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
  • Unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated, and community organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from an event without warning or refund.

If you are subject to unacceptable behavior, notice that someone else is being subject to unacceptable behavior, or have any other concerns, please let a community organizer know as soon as possible. You can contact us by email at montreal@wordcamp.org, through the contact form, or in person at any event.

Please help make the Montreal WordPress community a safe and comfortable place for all.
