Description

Workshop date: May 16, 2019 at 10 pm to 2 am UTC / 3 pm to 7 pm PDT / 8 am to 12 pm AEST

So you have a Code of Conduct. Great! How do you respond to a report that the Code of Conduct has been violated? How do you follow up with the person who was reported? Would you know what to say? Would you freeze in the moment?

This workshop is designed for people who are enforcing a Code of Conduct. You might be a moderator of an online community, or an event organizer who takes incident reports. This workshop will provide you the hands-on practice to support your community.

The workshop includes:

  • Practice taking an incident report
  • Practice following up with a reported person
  • Instructor modeling on how to take a report and follow up on a report
  • One practice scenario for a report given at an event
  • One practice scenario for a report given in an online community
  • Discussion on bias, microaggressions, personal conflicts, and false reporting
  • Frameworks for evaluating a response to a report
  • 40 minutes total of Q&A time

After the workshop, attendees are given access to the CC-BY-NC-SA licensed workshop materials. The materials include slides, a template form for incident responders to take a report, an event volunteer Code of Conduct guide, and a guide to creating safe(r) events.

Please note that this workshop is not designed to to help people understand how to follow a Code of Conduct. The workshop is designed to be a hands-on practice session, and will not cover all enforcement procedures.

Workshop Pricing

The pricing is for 1 attendee to participate in the workshop. If you purchase multiple seats, Otter Tech will be in contact to get the names and email addresses of all attendees.
