1. Our beliefs stand for inclusivity. We believe that every single person has the right to learn new things, share their knowledge, grow their network and have fun in a safe and welcoming environment.
  2. Note that participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Sponsors, judges, mentors, volunteers, organizers, and anyone else at the event are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, attendees should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material during the event.
  3. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.
  4. If participants wish to share photos of a speaker on social media, we strongly recommend that they first get the speaker’s permission. Participants may also share the contents of talks/slides via social media unless speakers have asked that specific details/slides can not be shared.
  5. GDG Algiers & WTM Algiers prioritize marginalized people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort.
