  • Look out for each other.
  • Treat the work and ideas of others as confidential unless they explicitly state otherwise.

Unnacceptable Behavior

  • Conduct or speech which might be considered sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, or otherwise discriminatory or offensive in nature.
  • Do not use unwelcome, suggestive, derogatory, or inappropriate nicknames or terms.
  • Do not show disrespect towards others (including bullying, innuendo, or dismissive attitudes).
  • Intimidation or harassment (online or in-person). Please read the Citizen Code of Conduct for how we interpret harassment.
