Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free hackathon
experience 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 do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate
for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media.
Diplohack participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference at the discretion of the conference organisers. Our diplohack is focused on creating applications with Open Data in order to create more transparency on European decision making. We invite participants to help us with this challenge.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, partners should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.
