Code of conduct

This code of conduct governs how we behave in any OSGeo forum or event and whenever we will be judged by our actions. We expect it to be honored by everyone who participates in the OSGeo community formally or informally, or claims any affiliation with the OSGeo Foundation.

 

Diversity Statement

OSGeo welcomes and encourages participation by everyone. We are committed to being a community that everyone feels good about joining, and we will always work to treat everyone well. No matter how you identify yourself or how others perceive you: we welcome you.

Reporting Guidelines

If you believe someone behaving inappropriately with respect to a code of conduct, you may reply to them, and point to this code of conduct. Such messages may be in public or in private, whatever is most appropriate. Assume good faith; it is more likely that participants are unaware of their bad behaviour than that they intentionally try to degrade the quality of the discussion. Should there be difficulties in dealing with the situation, you may report your concerns to event staff, a forum leader or any OSGeo Board member or officer. Serious or persistent offenders may be expelled from the event or forum by event organizers or forum leaders.

To privately email the code of conduct committee leadership use coc@osgeo.org.
