The Quick Version

Knowbility programs are committed to be safe learning and sharing experiences for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We will not tolerate harassment, intimidation, or bullying of program participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate for conference venues, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter, and other online media. Organizers will warn or expel without a refund program participants who violate these rules at the discretion of the conference organizers.
