A primary goal of Thoughtworks’ events is to be inclusive to a diverse group of people from all walks of life. Therefore, we are dedicated to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, appearance, disability, marital status, socioeconomic status, and religion (or lack thereof).
This code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our online and in-person events, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behaviour.
We invite all those who participate in Thoughtworks Germany events to help us create safe and positive experiences for everyone.
The following behaviours are expected and requested of all event participants:
The following behaviours are considered harassment and are unacceptable at our events:
If a participant engages in an inappropriate behavior, the event organizers may take any action they deem necessary including warning the offender or expulsion from the event. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed or have any other concerns please contact the organizer immediately.
Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.
Please remember that mistakes happen, you are not a bad person, simply reassess your behaviour and do better next time.
If you are subject to or witness unacceptable behaviour, or have any other concerns, please notify the event organizer as soon as possible. If you are not comfortable to speak to an organizer please feel free to send your concerns or any feedback to the ThoughWorks Germany Awareness Team at email@example.com
The Thoughtworks Germany Awareness Team helps to cultivate safe and inclusive spaces across all diversity dimensions (e.g. gender, ethnicity/race, disability, LGBTQIA+, neurodiversity, class) at Meetups and events. Our Awareness Team members have undergone training to respond with recommended actions to incidents and/or complaints that may arise during events.
Please approach an Awareness Team member if you have any questions, concerns, or if you require support and/or assistance.
The on-site Awareness Team member(s) will introduce themselves at the beginning of the event and can be identified by TW-branded T-Shirt(s), or badges.
We expect all event participants (contributors; sponsors; and other guests) to abide by this Code of Conduct at all Thoughtworks Germany events--online and in-person.
