Friendly space policy

The Hack4FI Friendly Space Policy has been developed to ensure the Hack4FI – Hack your heritage! hackathon remains a safe and respectful place for all attendees.

We strive to ensure that everyone has a positive and safe hackathon experience

AvoinGLAM is dedicated to providing a harassment-free, safe conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of Hack4FI participants in any form, whether uninvited sexual language or imagery, inappropriate comments about a participant’s gender or belief system. Hack4FI participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the hackathon. This Friendly Space Policy applies to all participants at the hackathon, including attendees, staff, organizers, and volunteers. We expect participants to follow these policies at all hackathon venues and hackathon-related social events.

What is harassment?

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. Harassment also includes sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, unwelcome following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

The organizers will take action to investigate harassment

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the hackathon organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, ranging from warning the offender or to expelling the offender from the hackathon. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the organizers immediately. We value your attendance.

Sensitive cultural content may be presented

Keep in mind that museum related events can at times deal with sensitive content, ranging from visually sensitive historical subject matter , subject matter that could be perceived as sexual in nature and language. This anti-harassment policy does not cover exposure to subject matter when in the proper context of a presentation, visit to a museum or related educational experience, unless these materials are being used in an inappropriate and abusive manner towards participants.
