Code of Conduct

Come for the software, stay for the community.

Drupal would simply not exist without its community. We want all attendees at the Baltimore Drupal Camp to have an awesome experience, both in and out of formal conference sessions.

The purpose of this document is not to restrict the diversity of ideas and expression in the Drupal community; rather, it's to raise awareness of the potential for actions that could alienate valuable members — and potential members — of the community.

We are considerate.

The Baltimore Drupal Camp attracts diverse people from a wide variety of ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds. We acknowledge that cross-cultural communication can be complicated and encourage everyone to consider both the impact of their actions on those with different backgrounds and experiences and the honest intentions of those who may have unknowingly caused offense.

We are welcoming.

One of the greatest strengths of the Drupal community is our inclusiveness. Making all attendees feel welcome and included at the Baltimore Drupal Camp is everyone’s job, including exhibitors and sponsors. 

We are respectful.

Sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, and other participants should strive to treat all people with dignity and respect, regardless of their culture, religion, physical appearance, disability, race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.

We are collaborative.

When we disagree, we consult others.

If people are unable to work out issues between themselves, they are encouraged to seek the advice of a mutually trusted third party or a designated community volunteer to help mediate. If you need to report a Code of Conduct violation during the event, please find a volunteer and ask to speak with someone on the Organizing Committee. 

When we need it, we ask for help.

We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. If you feel threatened or violated as a result of intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory or demeaning conduct, please immediately notify a conference staff member. Likewise, please immediately notify a volunteer if you notice that someone else is being subjected to such behavior.

The Baltimore Drupal Camp team wants everyone to feel safe for the duration of the conference. If necessary, camp staff are empowered to take appropriate actions that may include, but are not limited to, warnings, expulsion from the conference without refund, and referrals to venue security or local law enforcement.

We’re all in this together

Thanks for making the Baltimore Drupal Camp awesome for everyone!
