Education and collaboration are vital to the future of the Linux Foundation ecosystem and it is imperative to us that everyone in the community that wants to participate feels welcome to do so regardless of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, dis/ability, race, ethnicity, age, religion, or economic status. Our code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
We will be providing a private nursing room to aid in the comfort and accessibility of our nursing attendees. The room will be available all days of the event and will be located onsite. For location information, please check with registration or information desk staff onsite.
We are pleased to offer complimentary child care at the event. Children (as well as professional child care providers) must be fully vaccinated to participate.
If you need any assistance locating an elevator or have other questions about accessibility onsite, please speak to a member of the ArgoCon 2022 event staff at the registration or information desk onsite. If you have questions prior to the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wheelchair + Medical Equipment Rental
If you need a wheelchair or scooter, you can rent them from Home Medical Solutions. Please contact them directly for rates and availability.
Please be mindful of attendee’s pins throughout the conference and use this tool to communicate appropriately:
- Green = Handshakes and high 5’s are welcome with frequent handwashing.
- Yellow = Still being cautious, elbow bumps only.
- Red = No contact at all, please remain 6 feet away.
Don’t see a pin? Assume red until given permission from the other attendee.
Share your Pronouns
Select your pronouns during registration to share them with other conference attendees. Pronouns will be printed directly on your badge. Please be respectful of attendees’ pronouns.
We will designate specific restrooms as all-gender for attendees who feel more comfortable using those facilities.
First Aid/Medical Assistance
If you require first aid or medical assistance onsite, please visit our registration desk or the venue front desk. For emergencies, please dial 911.
How to Handle a Harassment Report
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the event staff immediately. Event staff can be identified by staff badges and/or shirts onsite and can be found at the event registration counter at any time. Our staff has had incident response training, responds to harassment reports and does so in accordance with the process recommended by the Ada Initiative, which can be found here on the Geek Feminism Wiki.
Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference.
If you are planning to attend an upcoming event and have concerns regarding another individual who may be present, please reach out to us pre-event. Precautions will be taken to ensure a victim’s comfort and safety, including, but not limited to providing an escort, prepping onsite event staff, keeping victim and harasser from attending the same talks/social events and providing onsite contact cell phone numbers for immediate contact.
