The Design Life community is an online community of motivated, encouraging and open-minded people. The community is for anyone who wishes to connect with like-minded individuals about (but not limited to) design, creativity and entrepreneurship. We’d like to keep this community, fun and friendly for all and so have created this code of conduct to ensure everyone feels safe within the community.
By joining the Design Life community you agree with the following code of conduct. We expect cooperation from everyone to ensure a safe, diverse, inclusive and welcoming environment.
Design Life is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.
This code of conduct applies to all Design Life spaces, including the Slack community, both online and off. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be removed from these spaces at the discretion of Femke and Charli.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact Femke or Charli immediately. If you can’t or don’t wish to speak to us in person, or prefer to talk privately or electronically, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by direct message in Slack.
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 Design Life spaces, but if you are being harassed by a member of Design Life outside our spaces, we still want to know about it. We will take all good-faith reports of harassment by Design Life members, especially the Admins, seriously. This includes harassment outside our spaces and harassment that took place at any point in time. Femke and Charli reserve the right to exclude people from the Design Life community based on their past behaviour, including behaviour outside Design Life spaces and behaviour towards people who are not in the Design Life community.
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.
All reports will be handled in the strictest confidence.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, Femke and Charli may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from all Design Life spaces and identification of the participant as a harasser to other Design Life members or the general public.
Design Life welcomes and encourages participation by everyone. No matter how you identify yourself or how others perceive you: we welcome you! We welcome contributions from everyone as long as they interact constructively with our community.
