The goal of Beyond the Code is to create a rewarding experience for
everyone involved — regardless of religion, ethnicity, physical
appearance, body size, or any other characteristics or beliefs.
All participants are expected to conduct themselves in a way that
that is respectful and inclusive of all individuals.
The code of conduct applies to all communication associated with
these events. This includes social media. Please post responsibly
In a nutshell: We ask that all Beyond the Code participants be
respectful, inclusive, and aware of your words and actions/reactions.
Be mindful of how your words or actions might affect others. Let’s
all work together to create an environment that makes space for each
other’s ideas and perspectives.
We encourage all participants to have open and honest discussions and
to be responsible for their words and actions. If you observe someone
behaving disrespectfully or insensitively towards someone else,
(and if you feel comfortable engaging them,) we encourage you to
respectfully ask them to stop. If the person does not respond to your
request, or you would prefer not to approach them, please contact a
member of the organization team immediately. We’re here to listen and
to help resolve any issues that may arise.
If you catch yourself being disrespectful or insensitive, or if you
are approached by someone about your words or behavior, we encourage
you to pause, listen openly to the concern, own what you’ve said or
done, apologize, and move forward in a constructive and respectful
way. Let’s work together as a community to ensure everyone
feels safe and respected.
