In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as Spokane Film Project members pledge to making participation in our projects and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:
- Using welcoming and inclusive language
- Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
- Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
- Focusing on what is best for the community
- Showing empathy towards other community members
Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:
- The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances
- Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
- Public or private harassment
- Publish others’ private information, such as physical or email address, without explicit permission
- Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting
Board members are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior, which may include expulsion of a member.
Board members have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any member or individual for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.
This Code of Conduct applies within all project spaces, and it also applies when an individual is representing Spokane Film Project or its community in public spaces. Examples of representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event. Representation may be further defined and clarified by the board.
Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise, unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the board with the form below. All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The board is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.
Board members who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other members of Spokane Film Project’s leadership.
