Code of Conduct Transparency Report
PyGotham strives to be a friendly and welcoming environment, and we take our code of conduct seriously. In the spirit of transparency, we publish a summary of the reports we received this year.
We appreciate those reports, and we encourage anyone who witnesses a code of conduct violation to report it via the methods listed at https://2019.pygotham.org/about/code-of-conduct/. PyGotham 2019 had four code of conduct reports made to the organizers. Anonymized details of these reports are below.
During the public voting phase of PyGotham’s talk selection process, a voter used the code of conduct report form to report an issue unrelated to the code of conduct. Conference staff confirmed that this was not a code of conduct incident with the reporter, and no further action was taken.
During the public voting phase of PyGotham’s talk selection process, a report was made regarding possible usage rights in a data collection process covered by the proposed talk.

An attendee made a joke about a turtle with no legs. Another attendee approached them to let them know that they should not have made the joke and should apologize. The first attendee reported themself and apologized.
