AMBER Code of Conduct
The Amber community is dedicated to providing a welcoming and supportive environment for all participants in activities enabled in some way by Amber, and when individuals represent Amber at any other function. The Code of Conduct sets forth guidelines for participant behavior that will help the community to achieve welcoming and inclusive spaces for engagement, and outlines examples of behavior that may otherwise negatively impact these shared goals.
This Code of Conduct applies to all spaces managed, hosted, or sponsored by the Amber community, including, but not limited to, meetings, email lists, and online forums such as Slack and Twitter, where conversations may pertain to or otherwise represent the Amber community and its activities.
In order to foster a positive and professional community environment, the community encourages the following kinds of behaviors in all platforms and events:
- Use welcoming and inclusive language
- Be respectful of different viewpoints and experiences
- Gracefully accept constructive criticism
- Focus on what is best for the community
- Show courtesy and respect towards other community members
Participants in Amber events and activities should do their best to foster fair participation of all people, including those of underrepresented groups. Prejudicial discrimination on the basis of age, color, disability, ethnicity, family status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, political affiliation, nationality, race, religion, or any other identity is a violation of the Amber Code of Conduct. Harassment and discrimination, including sexual harassment, bullying, and other abuses of power and authority, among other harms, limit fair access to the virtual and physical spaces where such harassment takes place, and will not be tolerated.
Reporting Troublesome Behavior
If you believe someone has violated the Code of Conduct, please report it to Amber Leadership. All reports will be reviewed by relevant members of Amber Leadership Team and the identities of those involved will be kept confidential to the extent possible. If one of the Leadership Team were identified, then review would exclude that individual.
