Code of Conduct

Everyone at Clarity must agree with this code of conduct to attend any place (conference, workshop, party, hotels, Slack, social media, etc.) that is associated with Clarity. Everyone means attendees, speakers, sponsors, volunteers, sketch noters, videographers, photographers, venue staff, and Clarity staff, etc. This code of conduct will be enforced strictly and everyone is expected to cooperate so we can have a safe, inclusive event.

Getting Help

If you have any questions or need to report a violation or concern, please contact me (Jina Anne) at the contact form, message me privately in the Design Systems Slack (where we discuss the event), on Twitter (@jina),  or approach me in person. I do not like to put my phone number on the internet, but I provide it in your attendee packet if you need to use that method.

When reporting an incident, please be as specific as possible with your contact info so I can reach you. It also helps to be detailed with as much information as possible, if you have it: names, witnesses, what happened, and any other context that can help.

If you need an escort or any other accommodations to feel safe or comfortable, please let me know so I can provide assistance. If you’re comfortable with it, I may have one of my volunteers help you since I am a small person, and I’m the only one running the event. But if you would prefer it be me to help, just let me know.

The Rules

  • No harassment or insults of any kind!
  • Specifically, no negative  comments related to gender, sex, identity, expression, orientation, age, physical ability, physical appearance, size, color, race, culture, national origin, immigration status, family status, ethnicity, religion, education level, social or economic class. This also includes putting someone down for their technology preferences and differences in approaches/opinions.
  • No intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography/recording, disruption of talks, unwelcome sexual attention, inappropriate or violent physical contact, etc.
  • No inappropriate sexual language, imagery, activities, or other material in talks, workshops, parties, sponsor booths, social media, the Slack, etc. No sexualized clothing, uniforms, costumes, etc. This applies to everyone, including sponsors.

Upon receiving a report

When I receive a report, I will review what happened and document the resolution. Depending on the severity of the offense, anyone violating these rules will receive either a warning, expulsion from the event without a refund, banning from future events, or legal action (with the consent of the victim). If you receive a warning to stop harassing behavior, you must comply immediately.

Thank you for your participation.

Have a safe, and inclusive Clarity!
