AltConf cannot happen unless everyone is safe and welcome. If anything happens to make you feel unsafe or unwelcome, let us know, and we will fix it.
AltConf is organized by volunteers as a service to the community. We care about what the community cares about, so we actively work to increase diversity at our conference and in our industry by providing a stage for under-represented people and ideas around Apple's platforms.
Social interaction is hard, and conferences bring so many different types of people together. We have as much to learn from each other as from the speakers. If we want to bring people together and help them understand each other, everyone must be safe and welcome.
AltConf is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone. We do not tolerate any form of harassment of conference participants, including attendees, speakers, organizers, and exhibitors. Anyone violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference at the discretion of the conference 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, or anything, really; 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.
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. Conference staff can be identified by their official volunteer t-shirts.
Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact the authorities, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference.
