Principles of a safer space
Give others space, pay attention to your choice of words and remember the diversity of people. Don't mock, demean, or embarrass anyone with your words or actions. Ask for space for yourself as well, if needed.
Respect everyone's right to self-determination and don't make assumptions about others' gender, background, family relationships, health or abilities among other things.
If you witness harassment or other inappropriate treatment, do not remain a bystander.
LISTEN AND LEARN
Face new topics and people without prejudice, take every new thing and situation that comes your way as an opportunity to learn something new and develop.
Making mistakes and asking questions is allowed. If you offend someone, apologize, and try to forgive others as well if they unintionally offend you.
If you encounter or witness improper treatment, you have the right to intervene. You can also notify the event organizers or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
