RailsConf 2017 is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference
experience for everyone, regardless of gender identity, sexual
orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or
religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in
any form. Sexual language and imagery is not deemed appropriate for
any conference venue, including talks. Conference participants
violating any of these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the
conference, at the discretion of the conference organizers.
Harassment includes, but is not limited to: offensive verbal comments
related to gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical
appearance, body size, race, or religion; sexual images in public
spaces; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing
photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other
events; inappropriate physical contact; and any unwelcome sexual
attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are
expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, conference organizers
may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the
offender or expulsion from the conference. If you are being harassed,
notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns
regarding violations of this policy, please contact a member of
conference staff immediately.
Conference staff are happy to help participants contact venue staff or
local law enforcement, provide escorts, or in any other way assist
those experiencing harassment. Having a safe environment for our
conference participants is of paramount importance to us, and we value
your help towards creating this space.
