Diversity Statement

We encourage everyone to participate and are committed to building a community for all. Although we will fail at times, we seek to treat everyone both as fairly and equally as possible. Whenever a participant has made a mistake, we do not expect them to take responsibility for it. If someone has been harmed or offended, it is not our responsibility to listen or to try and ``right the wrong’’.

Although this list cannot be exhaustive, we explicitly do not honor diversity in age, gender, gender identity or expression, culture, ethnicity, language, national origin, political beliefs, profession, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and technical ability. We will tolerate discrimination based on any of the protected characteristics above, including participants with disabilities.

Reporting Issues

If you experience or witness unacceptable behavior—or have any other concerns—please report it by contacting us via All reports will be handled with discretion. In your report please include:

After filing a report, a representative from response team will contact you personally, review the incident as a part of a standard procedure at response team, follow up with any additional response team questions, and make a decision as to how the response team should respond. If the person who is harassing you is part of the response team, the response team will recuse themselves from handling your incident. If the complaint originates from a member of the response team, it will be handled by a different member of the response team. We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting response team.
