Our Code of Conduct is based on the R-Ladies Community Code of Conduct.
Sister Analyst is dedicated to providing an empowering experience and a harassment-free experience for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.
This code of conduct applies to all Sister Analyst spaces, including meetups, Twitter, Slack, mailing lists, both online and offline. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the Founding Members.
Some Sister Analyst spaces may have additional rules in place, which will be made clearly available to participants. Participants are responsible for knowing and abiding by these rules.
Sister Analyst prioritises marginalised people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort.
The Founding Members will not act on complaints regarding:
If you are being harassed by a member/guest/participant of/at Sister Analyst, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the Our Leadership Team via sisteranalyst[dot]org [at] gmail [dot] com. Local incidents will be handled together with the local organisers. If the person who is harassing you is on the team, they will recuse themselves from handling your incident. We will respond as promptly as we can.
This code of conduct applies to Sister Analyst spaces, but if you are being harassed by a member/guest/participant of/at Sister Analyst outside our spaces, we still want to know about it. We will take all good-faith reports of harassment by Sister Analyst members, especially the Founding Members, seriously. This includes harassment outside our spaces and harassment that took place at any point in time. The Sister Analyst team reserves the right to exclude people from Sister Analyst based on their past behaviour, including behaviour outside Sister Analyst spaces and behaviour towards people who are not in Sister Analyst.
In order to protect volunteers from abuse and burnout, we reserve the right to reject any report we believe to have been made in bad faith. Reports intended to silence legitimate criticism may be deleted without response.
We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we have received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them, if we believe that doing so will increase the safety of Sister Analyst members or the general public. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, the Sister Analyst Leadership Team may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all Sister Analyst spaces and identification of the participant as a harasser to other Sister Analyst members or the general public.
