Geek Feminism Wiki

If you have a geek community, you should take steps to make it clear that harassment is unwelcome within it and to respond to reports of harassment.

Adopting our policy[]

There is a sample policy at Community anti-harassment/Policy.

In order to adopt a policy, you need at minimum, the following:

  • a policy
  • a contact point where harassment reports can be received
  • a group of responders who receive reports and have the power to act on them up to and including excluding harassers from your community

Other policies[]

Code of conduct evaluations lists many communities with policies, together with evaluating them on features such as enforcement mechanisms.


Communities that have adopted an anti-harassment policy are listed at Community anti-harassment/Adoption.


Our community anti-harassment policy is new from June 2014. Please review the Conference anti-harassment pages for information about adopting and enforcing policies, much of the advice applies in both situations.
