Code of Conduct

Fog City Ruby is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of meetup participants in any form. Meetup participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the meetup without a refund at the discretion of the meetup organizers.

Harassment includes:

  • verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination (related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, 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 behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the meetup organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the meetup with no refund. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an organizer immediately. To report harassment via email, you can email the organizers at hello@fogcityruby.com.
