Ask OSCON to adopt a conference anti-harassment policy/code of conduct

This petition had 68 supporters


Many people have been harassed or assaulted at OSCON and other O'Reilly organized conferences, and I want it to stop.

I ask OSCON and O'Reilly to adopt an actionable, specific policy describing their expectations for a safe, harassment-free conference, including instructions for speakers, attendees, and staff on how to respond to incidents of harassment.

If you are speaking at OSCON, you can update your bio to support this cause:

Some example policies adopted by several dozen other open source conferences are listed here:
