esLibre believes in a community open to everyone. As such, we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all regardless of gender, gender, sexual orientation, specific abilities/needs, ethnicity or place of birth, religion (even preferred operating system or programming language and text editor!)
We are looking for people who want to talk about free culture with empathy.
This code of conduct aims to show our willingness to create a safe and relaxed environment at the event, committing participants, volunteers and speakers to be responsible and respectful.
Open Source Citizenship
An additional goal of this code of conduct is to increase open source citizenship by encouraging participants to recognize and strengthen the relationships between what we do and the wider community.
En el servicio de este objetivo, los organizadores de esLibre recogerán candidaturas de personas ejemplares a lo largo de todo el evento y reconocerán selectos participantes después de la conferencia en el sitio web.
In service of this goal, esLibre organizers will collect nominations from exemplary individuals throughout the event and will recognize select participants after the conference on the website.
You can nominate someone by informing any member of the organization about it throughout the congress.
