Code of Conduct

The Tech Leader Series is curated by Tabar.

We have developed this community code of conduct to actively set expectations for the Tech Leader Series and to promote safety and inclusiveness for all participants. 

Everyone participating in the Tech Leader Series is required to agree to the following code of conduct. This includes all Faculty Members/presenters and participants, 

We expect cooperation from everyone to promote and sustain a safe, diverse, and welcoming environment.

The short version

Tabar is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

Sexist, racist, discriminatory, or harassing language and imagery is not appropriate in the Tech Leader Series community, in person or online. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from, online channels (e.g Slack), and all future events without a refund at the discretion of Tech Leader Series organizers.

The longer version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing 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 required to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in any of the aforementioned behaviour, Tabar may take any action they deem appropriate, from warning the offender to immediately expelling the offender with no refund.

Reporting and Enforcement

If you feel you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an organizer or volunteer. If you can’t or don’t wish to speak in person, or prefer to talk privately or electronically, contact us at or by direct message in Slack or Twitter.

All reports will be handled in the strictest confidence.
