The Seattle GiveCamp organizing committee expects that the community of volunteers and nonprofits will adhere to the following code of conduct:
- Come to this weekend with the intent to do what is right for the nonprofit organizations we serve
- Participate in providing a safe and respectful environment for all participants.
- Value the contributions of others.
- Find a way for people to be productive with their skills and energy.
- Encourage members and participants to listen as much as they speak.
- We will not tolerate discrimination or harassment.
- Seattle GiveCamp reserves the right to ask anyone in violation of these policies to immediately leave the Seattle GiveCamp facilities and may elect to ban such individuals from participation in all Seattle GiveCamp activities and events.
Seattle GiveCamp’s Anti-Harassment Policy
Seattle GiveCamp is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of staff, presenters, and participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any Seattle GiveCamp event or activity, including workshops. Anyone in violation of these policies may be expelled from Seattle GiveCamp activities and events at the discretion of the Seattle GiveCamp organizing committee.
Harassment includes but is not limited to: offensive verbal or written comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion; sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact; unwelcome sexual attention; unwarranted exclusion; and patronizing language or action.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from Seattle GiveCamp activities, events, and workshops.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the event staff immediately. You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Event staff will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event.
If you cannot reach an event organizer or it is an emergency, please call 911 and/or remove yourself from the situation.
Seattle GiveCamp staff acknowledge that we are not always in a position to evaluate a given situation due to the number of events and the fact that our team is not always present. However, we are hopeful that by providing these guidelines we are establishing a community that jointly adheres to these values and can provide an environment that is welcoming to all.
We value your attendance and hope that by communicating these expectations widely we can all enjoy a harassment-free environment.
