Our Meetup Code of Conduct
All attendees, speakers, sponsors, organizers and volunteers at this meetup are required to agree with the following code of conduct. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.
Our meetups are dedicated to provide a safe and harassment-free 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 participants in any form. Weapons or any other items used for the purpose of causing injury or harm to others are forbidden at the venue.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harmful behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harmfule behavior, the organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event with no refund.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the event's staff immediately.

We expect participants to follow these rules at the meetup and all related social events.

Message of Empowerment
You don't have to be able to hack NASA in order to be a part of Think About! events. As long as you are considerate of others and intend to learn, you have a place here.
You have the right to decide when, where and by whom you want to be photographed or filmed.
You have the right to be treated fairly. Nobody has the right to threaten you or scare you. No matter how. Nobody is allowed to blackmail you, treat you poorly or hurt you. You decide what goes beyond your limits, nobody else.
You have the right to decide how close people can be to you. Nobody is allowed to touch you, massage you, caress you, kiss you without your consent, or push you to do so to someone else.
You have the right to say NO and to resist when someone oversteps your borders, hurts your feelings or those of someone else. You can say NO with facial expressions, words or body language. Even if you have said YES before.
