This code of conduct governs Reciprocity’s Community, including its Slack community, customer community, and any events hosted by Reciprocity.
We believe a strong community starts with respect for your fellow community members and their diverse options and experiences.
Our goal is to maintain a safe, helpful and friendly community for everyone, regardless of experience, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, nationality, or other defining characteristic.
This code and related procedures apply to unacceptable behavior occurring in all community venues, including behavior outside the scope of community activities — online and in-person— as well as in all one-on-one communications, and anywhere such behavior has the potential to adversely affect the safety and well-being of community members.
