Code of Conduct Transparency Report
PyGotham strives to be a friendly and welcoming environment, and we take our code of conduct seriously. In the spirit of transparency, we publish a summary of the reports we received this year. We appreciate those reports, and we encourage anyone who witnesses a code of conduct violation to report it via the methods listed at https://2020.pygotham.tv/about/code-of-conduct/. PyGotham TV had one code of conduct report made to the organizers. Anonymized details of the report are below.
- A talk included jokes at the expense of other people based on their age, social media usage, and programming backgrounds. Conference staff contacted the speaker and explained that these comments did not foster an inclusive environment and did not add substantial value to the presentation. The speaker acknowledged this and committed to being more mindful in future talks. The talk was included in the conference with the jokes in question edited out by conference staff.
