The WPCampus Slack guidelines help ensure everyone has an enjoyable, productive, and safe experience. You must read and agree to these guidelines before receiving an invite.
We believe the advancement of WordPress in higher education is most powerful when its voices are diverse.
We, therefore, seek to provide a friendly, safe environment in which all participants can engage in productive dialogue, sharing, and learning with each other in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
We are committed to providing a harassment-free environment for all regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, diet, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), technology choices, etc.
In order to attain such an environment, we require all participants to adhere to the following code of conduct. This code of conduct outlines our expectations for behavior during all WPCampus interactions and events, what to do if you witness or are subject to unacceptable behavior, and how organizers will respond.
Our code of conduct also exists to support our community's statement on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
If you witness or are subject to unacceptable behavior, please contact an event organizer or one of our Slack administrators, use our contact form, or submit a report online, which allows for anonymity.
Submit a code of conduct report
You can submit an anonymous conduct report. This form includes fields for identifying information, but they are not required. We can’t follow up on an anonymous report with you directly, but we will fully investigate and take whatever action is necessary to prevent a recurrence.
You can submit a conduct report with identifying information. You may include only partial identifying information.
You can find an organizer at in-person events. They are listed in the program and can be identified by their name badges. You can connect with an organizer at an online event. All organizers are listed on the website and can be contacted via Slack or the event website’s contact form.
You can message WPCampus staff via email or direct message in Slack
When taking a personal report, organizers will ensure you are safe and cannot be overheard. They may involve other organizers to ensure your report is addressed properly. Once safe, we’ll ask you to tell us about what happened. This can be upsetting, but we’ll handle it respectfully. You are welcome to bring someone to support you. You won’t be required to confront anyone and we won’t tell anyone who you are.
Those found to be engaging in unacceptable behavior will be asked to stop immediately and shall comply. Depending on the severity of the behavior and the need to protect participants’ safety, those who violate this policy may be expelled from the community along with any social interactions and events.
