Community-led development "The Apache Way"
Please see the Apache-wide Code of Conduct policy, which covers expected behavior within any Apache project's public or private spaces, including email lists.
The Apache Conference Committee adopted this policy. Its most recent change was on 2011-08-24.
All conferences organised directly by the Apache Software Foundation are required to have an Anti-Harassment Policy. Unless otherwise approved by ConCom, these events will use the policy listed below.
All conferences organised by an external producer on behalf of the Apache Software Foundation (such as ApacheCon) must have an Anti-Harassment Policy. We recommend that you use the policy below, but you may use an alternative policy if the ConCom planners approve it. Such approval will only be granted provided that the policy provides similar coverage, and you supply an explanation for the change.
Conferences organised by third parties which use Apache marks (under the Third Party Event Branding Policy) must have an Anti-Harassment Policy. The policy must either be the one below or one approved as an alternative by the ASF.
This policy is based on the one developed by Geek Feminism

[Event name] is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled without a refund, at the discretion of the event organizers.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, unwanted photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.
Sexual language and imagery will not be tolerated in any event venue, including talks. Exhibitors should also refrain from using sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.
If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, the organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event without a refund. We expect participants to follow these rules at all event venues and related social events.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the event team immediately. The team can be found [registration desk location or similar].
The event team will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security (as available) or local law enforcement, provide escorts to walk you to/from your room/car/taxi/etc, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.
