SAFE SPACE POLICY

GLITCH is dedicated to an inclusive, harassment-free experience for everyone regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, appearance, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

Suggestive sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for our office or any events hosted by GLITCH. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from events or services [without a refund] at the discretion of the GLITCH staff.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments [related to gender, 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 behavior are expected to comply immediately.

We expect participants to follow these rules at all GLITCH social events and while at GlitchHQ.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, GLITCH may take any action as they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from GlitchHQ or events hosted by GLITCH [with no refund]. If you see anyone doing ANY of these to others or yourself, please approach a GLITCH staff member to report the incident as soon as possible. You’ll be asked to fill out an incident report form (either on record or anonymously, whichever you prefer), which will be immediately escalated to, depending on the severity, security, or local authorities.

Bottom line – please don’t be a jerk and make GlitchHQ and all GLITCH related events a fun experience for everyone involved.
