Professionalism Policy

Racketfest borrows from the spirit of Racket, whose community aims to improve the world through programming. Racket started with the goal of introducing everyone to the wonderful world of program design, with a spirit of full inclusion and no emphasis on any specific group. Over time it has grown into a full-fledged professional community with a well-known reputation for helpfulness and openness on its on-line communication channels. We want that openness and friendliness to extend to Racketfest.

For this to happen, Racketfest needs to be a space that where everyone can participate without fear of personal harassment. Harassment is understood here as unwelcome or hostile behavior, which, in turn, we understand as behavior that focuses on people instead of ideas. The ACM’s anti-harassment policy lists some unacceptable behaviors. Responses such as just joking, only teasing, or being playful, are unacceptable.

In short, be professional and kind. We’re all here to learn and share.

Anyone witnessing or subject to unacceptable behavior should notify the Racketfest organizer (Jesse Alama).

If a Racketfest participant engages in harassing behavior, the Racketfest organizer may take any action they deem appropriate, ranging from a verbal warning to expulsion (without refund) from the conference.

(The wording of this policy is derived, with permission & thanks, from that of RacketCon, which in turn was derived from the SNAPL conference.)
