Code of Conduct

We gather to learn from one another virtually and in person throughout the year and seek to make our community inclusive for all. We aim to create an inclusive, diverse, equitable, and accessible environment for our community. We are conscious of the power dynamics which exist within our community.

We strive to recognize these dynamics actively and minimize their harmful effects. This code of conduct is a living document that will evolve based on feedback from our partners and community. We will not always get it right. and we encourage members of the community to reach out and let us know in cases where we miss the mark. We are committed to learning from one another and growing together. We welcome your input. Please reach out to Good Tech Community if you have any thoughts and/or suggestions.
