Code of Conduct

SeattleJS is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or religion (or lack thereof). SeattleJS does not tolerate harassment of conference participants or staff at any time nor in any form.

Anyone violating these guidelines may be removed from the event and/or our platforms at our sole sole discretion.

Thank you for helping make SeattleJS a welcoming, friendly event for all.

Expected Behavior

All communication at our events (in-person or virtual) or on our platforms (Discord, Meetup, etc) should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Please be kind to others.

Participate in an authentic and active way. In doing so, you contribute to the health and longevity of this community.

  • Exercise consideration and respect in your speech and actions.
  • Attempt collaboration before conflict.
  • Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing comments.
  • Be mindful of your fellow attendees and alert an Organizer if you notice a dangerous situation, someone in distress, or someone violating this Code of Conduct, even if they seem inconsequential.
