Code of Conduct is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion or lack thereof. We do not tolerate harassment of community members in any form.

This code of conduct applies to all spaces, including Newsletter, YouTube Channel, as well as online and offline events. Anyone who violates this code of conduct may be sanctioned or expelled from these spaces at the discretion of the Organiser.

Some spaces may have additional rules in place, which will be made clearly available to participants. Participants are responsible for knowing and abiding by these rules.


At, we are committed to fostering a mentoring environment that is inclusive, respectful, and free from harassment. Whether you are a mentor or a mentee, we value the principles of equality and open communication. Harassment based on gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion, or any other characteristic will not be tolerated. Our aim is to create a space where everyone feels empowered to learn, share, and grow. Let’s build a supportive community together.

Trainer/Workshop Participant

In our workshops and training sessions, promotes an atmosphere of mutual respect and collaborative learning. As a participant, you contribute to this positive environment. Discrimination, harassment, or any form of disruptive behavior is not acceptable. We encourage open dialogue, questions, and engagement while maintaining courtesy and consideration for fellow participants and trainers. Let’s make our workshops spaces where diverse perspectives are welcomed, and everyone has the opportunity to benefit from the shared knowledge.
