Code of Conduct

Design Evening is a community event intended for collaboration and networking between designers, developers, and community members. We value the presence of every attendee and want everyone to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. All attendees are therefore expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout the workshops and the conference.

All attendees – participants, speakers, exhibitors, organisers and volunteers are required to adhere to the following Code of Conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event.

For questions or to report a problem please email or call 8008105850.


Design Evening is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference attendees in any form.

All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds.


Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate during talks. Refrain from using these in your slides. Sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not acceptable.


Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. Exhibitors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.


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.


Attendees asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.

If an attendee engages in behaviour that violates this code of conduct, the conference organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expelling him or her from the premises with no refund.


This Code of Conduct was adapted from the HasGeek Meta Refresh Code of Conduct. That was originally forked from the PyCon US Code of Conduct, which in turn was forked from the Geek Feminism wiki.
