Code of Conduct

Our Commitment

We, the HashiConf organizers, will do our utmost best to ensure all conference attendees feel safe, whether attending in person or virtually. We are dedicated to making HashiConf a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. 

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual language or imagery in public or private conference spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, trolling, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. 

If a participant, speaker, or conference staff member engages in harassing behavior, we may take any action we deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund. 

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately.

At our in-person event, conference staff can be identified by distinct staff t-shirts and badges. They will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. 

For those attending virtually, please email hashiconf@hashicorp.com with any concerns you have.

We value your attendance. We likewise expect you, as a participant, to adhere to the following code of conduct at all conference venues and conference-related social events.

Code of Conduct

I. I am an attendee at HashiConf, learning from and sharing with other HashiConf attendees in an effort to better myself and my industry. I co-create the experience with fellow attendees. I am prepared to give my energy, presence and sensitivity to creating the best possible experience for myself and others.

II. I am coming to HashiConf to interact with people. I understand that imagery and language which is suggestive or derogatory will offend and make people uncomfortable. I also understand that people may have boundaries and sensibilities different from my own. I will accept without question when informed that something is offensive or unacceptable in the context of the HashiConf event.

III. I will never intentionally harass or offend another attendee regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, appearance, size, race or religion and will not abide another attendee being harassed or offended. If I am aware that anyone is uncomfortable or unsafe, I will notify those giving offense as well as the HashiConf event organizers immediately.

IV. If I am offended or harassed, I will inform people around me who make me feel safe and the event organizers. If I feel safe, at my discretion, I will inform those giving offense of the specific actions with the hope that the other party is well-intentioned and ignorant, but I understand that I am under no obligation to do so.

V. I understand that people are different and I attempt to be forgiving of others' actions which may unintentionally hide their sincere intent, but my priority is protecting my safety and the safety of others. I will act without hesitation or reservation until there is no question about the safety of all parties.

VI. I trust the HashiConf organizers and attendees will co-create the best possible experience for everyone involved, as I will. I believe HashiConf is about empowering people and I will not forget I am empowered to create a safe and nurturing environment. If I or any other attendee violates this aspect of the event, I expect the conference organizers to protect the attendees by direct action, including expelling those in violation and contacting the proper authorities.
