Code of Conduct

The Independent Journal, Georgetown University and HACK THE DEBATE’s sponsors are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, previous hackday attendance or computing experience (or lack of any of the aforementioned). HACK THE DEBATE does not tolerate harassment of hackathon participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate at any hackathon venue, including hacks, talks, workshops, parties, social media and other online media. We expect participants to follow these rules at the hackathon and hackathon-related social events. Hackathon participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the hackathon at the discretion of the Independent Journal.
