Code of Conduct

In the interest of providing a truly open and welcoming event, the Plone Symposium Midwest has adopted the official Plone Code of Conduct, which was created by the Plone Foundation in July 2012.

Anti-Harassment and Anti-Bullying Code of Conduct

The Plone Foundation is dedicated to providing a respectful, 
harassment-free community for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment
or bullying of any community member in any form. This does not only
extend to members of the Plone Foundation, but to anyone who chooses
to become involved in the larger Plone community of users, developers
and integrators through events or interactions.

Harassment includes offensive verbal/electronic comments related 
to personal characteristics or choices, sexual images or comments
in public or online spaces, deliberate intimidation, bullying,
stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained
disruption of talks, IRC chats, electronic meetings, physical
meetings or other events, inappropriate physical contact, or unwelcome
sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing or
bullying behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, representatives of 
the community may take reasonable action they deem appropriate, 
including warning the offender, expulsion from any Plone event, or
expulsion from mailing lists, IRC chats, discussion boards and other
electronic communications channels to resolve the issue. This may
include expulsion from Plone Foundation membership.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, 
or have any other concerns, please act to intercede or ask for help
from any member of the Plone Foundation, IRC chat admins, website
admins, or organizers/representatives of any physical events put
on under the auspices of the Plone Foundation.


If you believe you have been targeted by any of the behaviours or actions listed in the Plone Code of Conduct, please speak immediately to one of the Plone Symposium Midwest organizers (Kim Nguyen, John Hren, Brian Ledwell, David Hietpas, Luke Scorcio, Rob Porter, Ken Wasetis, Carol Ganz, Nathan Van Gheem).
