Conference Code of Conduct

All attendees, speakers, partners, staff and volunteers at our conference are required to follow the code of conduct.

The bottom line:

Have a good time and help others have a good time too. Say hi to someone you don’t know. Meet interesting people. Don’t act surprised when a person doesn’t conform to a stereotype. No one is there with the goal of representing a minority so wait before talking about “being minority X in tech”. Make sure people are okay with touching before you touch them. Laugh and learn. You, and everyone else, is here to have a good time and learn something new – let us know if anything is getting in the way of that.

“Lawyer style” text

Agile Practitioners Israel conference (APIL) strives to be an enjoyable and welcoming conference for all attendees, regardless of their background, abilities or appearance. We do not tolerate harassment of our participants or staff in any form.

Harassment includes offensive comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion (or lack thereof), deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, photography or audio/video recording against reasonable consent, sustained disruption of talks or other events, unwanted physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Sexual imagery in public spaces is inappropriate, both in the event or in any other related media such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn etc.

Partners are also subject to this policy. In particular, partners should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material, use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.

Participants, speakers or partners asked to stop any harassing or inappropriate behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the organizers will confer with the offended party and take any action they deem appropriate, from warning the offender to expulsion from the conference with no refund.

The APIL staff cannot be everywhere all the time. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, say something if you feel safe speaking up, and please contact an organizer immediately. Even if the situation has already been handled, this will help us keep an eye out for further problems. Organizers can be identified by their conference organizer shirts.

Know that we support and cherish your attendance over that of the harasser regardless of their speaker status or community standing.
