Code of Conduct 3.0

SkyHack 3.0 Code of Conduct 

Be respectful. Harassment and abuse are never tolerated. If you are in a situation that makes you uncomfortable during this event, if the event itself is creating an unsafe or inappropriate environment, or if interacting with a SkyHack representative or event organizer makes you uncomfortable, please report it using the procedures included in this document.  

The SkyHack 3.0 producing team stands for inclusivity and belongin. We believe that every single person has the right to hack in a safe and welcoming environment.  

Harassment includes but is not limited to offensive verbal or written comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, social class, economic status, veteran status. Additional cases of harassment include but not limited to sharing sexual images, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, brigading, doxxing, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. If what you’re doing is making someone feel uncomfortable, that counts as harassment and is enough reason to stop doing it.  

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.  

Sponsors, judges, mentors, volunteers, organizers, SkyHack staff, and anyone else participating in the event are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, attendees should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material both in their hacks and during the event. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.  

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the SkyHack Organizing Team may take any action it deems appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event with no eligibility for reimbursement or refund of any type.  

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please speak out and contact a member of the SkyHack Team using the reporting procedures defined below.   

SkyHack Team representatives can help participants contact campus security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.  

We expect participants to follow these rules at all physical and virtual experience modes of the. hackathon venue, online interactions in relation to the event, hackathon-related social events, and on hackathon supplied transportation.
