The 2015 GeeksForCONsent Geek Girl After party Saturday May 9 is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference 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 party guests in any form. Guests violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the party at the discretion of the 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. Guests asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the party. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Party staff can be identified by their GeeksForCONsent buttons.
Party staff will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.
Dudes are welcome to join our space, but be aware that this is not an opportunity to flirt with other attendees. Be mindful of how much space you are taking and how you could be impacting the fun of others around you. If you are found to be making other attendees uncomfortable, we won’t hesitate to kick you out!
