This document outlines a set of project participation guidelines, and is intended as guidance for all public and private interactions around any project that Open Knowledge Foundation leads on, or partners in.
The goal of these guidelines is to make explicit the type of participation that is expected, and the behaviour that is unacceptable. These guidelines are to be adhered to by all Open Knowledge Foundation staff, all partners on a given project, and, all public participants.
These guidelines are applicable to:
The following behaviours are expected from all project participants, including Open Knowledge Foundation staff, project partners, and all other participants.
The following behaviours are unacceptable from Open Knowledge Foundation staff, project partners, and all other participants.
Unacceptable behaviour from any participant in any public or private forum around projects we are involved in, including those with decision-making authority, will not be tolerated.
Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behaviour is expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in unacceptable behaviour, any action deemed appropriate will be taken, up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from participatory forums.
If you are subject to, or witness, unacceptable behaviour, or have any other concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. This email is read by the following staff at Open Knowledge Foundation: Shireen Kovoor, HR manager.
