This code of conduct was created to clearly define what is expected of all OpenQualityConf.com (OQConf) attendees, hosts, vendors, speakers, testers, developers, volunteers, and users of all OQConf spaces on-site and online should an issue arise. This including but not limited to email correspondence, Slack, Zoom Conference calls, and all communication by any means of technology now known and not yet discovered.
At OQConf, we aim to promote open-source projects, to share and collaborate proper use of technologies, and increase communication between testing groups in an open and inclusive environment free of harassment, discrimination, and any additional forms of violence. As an international conference, we believe that it is integral to have a safe and welcoming space for our diverse community, including all speakers, attendees, and sponsors from all backgrounds and beliefs. We value all involved with our events and are unwilling to subject anyone to any form of hostility or harassment.
We have laid out a few core values we believe in and expect all attendees to be respectful, considerate, open-minded, indiscriminate, and supportive of each other.
To promote all attendees' participation, we will secure a safe and comfortable environment to speak and express opinions. We acknowledge the broad experiences and interpretations our attendees bring and welcome each perspective. Disagreements will occur, and we encourage attendees to engage in a respectful discourse of peer to peer discussions, feedback, or corrections and apologize for your mistakes.
We ask anyone involved in a debate to remain openminded and supportive of others' expressions. If a disagreement arises, consider that opinions are just that—opinions— not reflective of an individual's character or intellect.
Please keep in mind the use of phrases and how this may affect others around you in different circumstances. At the OQConf, we invite all who are willing to learn and collaborate regardless of race, sex, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, or socioeconomic status. If you notice any form of harassment around you, reach out to one of the OQC staff members.
As a way to create a safe and secure environment for all involved in the OQConf, we have defined harassment as follows:
If you are a victim or notice any form of abuse, harassment, inequality, or any other concerns occurring around you, please report it. We want to resolve the issue immediately to prevent any additional problems.
OQConf reserves the right to enforce at-fault individuals who have disobeyed our code of conduct in a manner we believe to be peaceful and positive for the community.
Depending on the situation, some of the consequences we will discuss are:
We believe that these values are imperative for creating an open and inclusive environment to spark innovation and collaboration. So, we insist that all parties mentioned above must agree with the code of conduct to partake in OQConf events. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the conference, and cooperation from all participants is needed to help ensure a safe and comfortable environment for everybody.
