TL;DR - Be respectful, harassment and abuse are never tolerated. If you are in a situation that makes you uncomfortable in OrangeHacks space, if the space is itself creating an unsafe or inappropriate environment, or if interacting with any of OrangeHacks representative or organizers make you uncomfortable, please report it using the procedures included in the document.
OrangeHacks (Oh!) is a diversified and inclusive community where we believe every single person has the right to participate in a safe and welcoming environment.
Harassment includes but is not limited to offensive verbal or written comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, social class, economic status, and veteran status. Additional cases of harassment include but are not limited to sharing sexual images, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, brigading, doxing, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcoming sexual attention. If you’re making someone feel uncomfortable, that comes as harassment and is enough reason to stop doing it.
Community members, OrangeHacks representatives, and organizers asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Sponsors, speakers, mentors, judges, volunteers, representatives, organizers, and anyone else participating in the event are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, attendees should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material both in their projects and during the event. Volunteers, representatives, and organizers should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes or otherwise create a sexualized environment.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, OrangeHacks may take action it deems appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event with no eligibility for reimbursement or refund of any type.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact OrangeHacks using the appropriate procedures defined underneath.
OrangeHacks representatives can help attendees contact campus security or local law enforcement, provide escort, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.
We expect attendees to follow these rules at all event venues, online interaction in relation to the event, social events, hackathons, meet-ups, and on OrangeHacks-supplied transportation.
