This code of was inspired by Ally Skills, Geek Feminism Wiki and WWGSD. The purpose of this code of conduct is to provide a guideline on how to act within the Multitudes’ Community groups. The goal is to provide a safe, inclusive, and harassment free community where everyone has psychological safety regardless of their background. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form and any acts in breach of this code will result in the removal from this community group.
This code applies to all Multitudes spaces, including; the Multitudes Community slack channel, and future Multitudes webinars and community events. Any violation of this code may result in the individual or party being sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the Multitudes team.
Harassment includes, but is not limited to:
Multitudes prioritizes marginalized people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort. The Multitudes team reserves the right not to act on complaints regarding:
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 the communities and events for everyone.. We want you to feel valued and respected when interacting with Multitudes and our community You can make a report in person or anonymously.
If you are being harassed by a member of the Multitudes community, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, you can report in one of two ways:
We will respond as promptly as we can. For anonymous reports, we can’t follow up with you directly, but we will fully investigate it and take whatever action is necessary to prevent a recurrence. If the person who is harassing you is on the response team, they will recuse themselves from handling your incident.
This code of conduct applies to Multitudes spaces, but if you are being harassed by a member of the Multitudes community outside our spaces, we still want to know about it. We will take all good-faith reports of harassment by Multitudes community members, especially the leadership team, seriously. This includes harassment outside our spaces and harassment that took place at any point in time. The abuse team reserves the right to exclude people from Multitudes based on their past behavior, including behavior outside Multitudes spaces and behavior towards people who are not affiliated with Multitudes.
In order to protect our team from abuse and burnout, we reserve the right to reject any report we believe to have been made in bad faith. Reports intended to silence legitimate criticism may be deleted without response.
We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we’ve received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of Multitudes community members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the Multitudes team may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all Multitudes spaces and identification of the participant as a harasser to other Multitudes members or the general public.
